There are several preferences that mange updated meal pattern checks in Minute Menu HX. This allows sponsors to adjust the behavior of the edit checks when advised to do so by their state agency. It is best practice to leave these policies set as they are, unless your state agency has advised to continue paying for meals.
- Preference Q.008: This preference determines the behavior of the whole grain edit check. You can set this policy to warn, disallow, or ignore. All sponsors are set to disallow by default.
- Preference Q.011: This policy determines the behavior of the edit check for juice served more than once per day. You can set this policy to warn or disallow. All sponsors are set to disallow by default.
- Preference Q.012: This policy determines the behavior of the edit check for meat served more than three times per week at breakfast. You can set this policy to warn or disallow. By default, all Sponsors will be set to disallow.
Any warnings or disallowances generated by the edit checks referenced above are visible on the Provider Error Letter. Use caution when changing your policy settings, as they impact the results of claims processing. We recommend that you do not change these policies mid-month (i.e. processing late claims vs. on-time claims under different policy settings).
Note: We do not save the complete list of policy settings applied to an individual claim. So, if you change the policies inside a claim month, make your own notes of what you changed and when so you can look back at those claims in the future.
