NSF Claim Generation Rules

NSF claims list up to three insurance carriers for each patient. Each of these can be marked to be included for claim payment or for information only. The last four rules for patient insurance selection determine whether to include for claim payment or for information only.

Claims will be split so that they are in groups by provider, diagnosis record, authorization number, and case record. Claims can also be split by year of service according to a Generator option for NSF receivers.

The following rules are used by the program to determine whether to generate a claim and which services will be included. A claim and claim service will be generated unless eliminated by any one of these rules.
