Block Claim Monthly Report

You can print the Block Claimers report when analyzing block claims, or from the reports menu. This report lists all providers who the Analyze Block Claims function has determined are blocking within the month. 

You can use this report to determine when to visit providers for corrective action, as the Analyze Block Claims function does not automatically update review schedules. The report includes the provider's next required review date per the information in their file.

To print this report from the Reports menu:

  1. Click the Reports menu, select Claim Data, and click Block Claim Monthly Report. The Select Month dialog box opens.
