Care Package Setup

Setup Care Package Resident

When preparing  for Care Package billing, you must ensure the basic setup is complete.  To verify your billing is accurate, each step - from setting up rates to indicating which services are included in the package - must be completed.

Billing Options

Before you begin billing you will need to determine what type of billing you have. Each resident has their own "billing option".  In ResiDex we allow Care Package or Fee for Service billing.  You may have all Residents on the same billing option or you may have a combination.

Care Package Setup

Care Packages are typically a monthly or daily package that is usually based on a care level or points system. A resident must be on the billing option "Care Package" in order to see the "care package" field in the "Fee and Payers" screen.

Fees/Payers: Care Package

Care packages are set up under the "Fee and Payers" screen for residents with the billing option "Care Package"

Include In Package

"Include in Package" is the option used for residents with the "Care Package" billing option. When this option is selected and an individual is on a package, the service will automatically default as included in the package. This is the DEFAULT option, but services can be turned on or off as included in the package for each resident in the resident's service plan.

Charge Type

Each service in the Global Job (Service) List is assigned to a "charge type".  A charge type will determine how the service is billed for all Fee for Service billing and items NOT marked as included in the package for Care Package Billing.

Rate Schedule Setup

When creating a rate schedule, you will determine what a unit will equal and what rate per provider will be billed per unit. Rate schedules will be used for fee for service and care package billing when incremental charges are billed at a VARIABLE rate.

Rate Changes

There are several areas that rates are entered in ResiDex; this document will outline how to update those rates as needed.
