FISS/DDE Provider Online Guide: Chapter VII 


About the 201 Pend Report

Purpose

The 201 Pend Report is designed to assist providers in accessing information regarding the status of their submitted claims. This report is available to view directly through the FISS DDE online system—this is a weekly report.

The 201 report has three main sections:

  • Summary of Pended Claims;
  • Summary of Processed Claims; and
  • Summary of Returned Claims

Each summary section of the report provides a separate count for both original claims and adjustment claims. Each report section is labeled based on type of bill (TOB).

The last page of the 201 Pend Report contains a summary of the pended, processed, and returned sections. This page of the report is titled “Claims Summary Totals.”

The remainder of this section will address the information contained within each section of the 201 Pend Report, and will show you how the report will visually appear online.

Whenever you are viewing a report on the FISS DDE online system, you will need to toggle between a “left to right” viewing screen environment. To accomplish this, use the <PF11> key to move your viewing screen to the right, and the <PF10> key to return your viewing screen to the left.

Please note: Medicare Choice claims, end-stage renal disease (ESRD)-managed care demo claims, and plan submitted health maintenance organization (HMO) (Encounter) claims are excluded.

Summary of Pended Claims– First Report Section

Claims will remain on the SUMMARY OF PENDED CLAIMS section of the report until they are either paid, rejected, or return to provider (RTP).

The following two screen prints show how the SUMMARY OF PENDED CLAIMS section appears on the FISS DDE online system:

On the next line of the report there should also be a reason code that will describe the information that National Government Services has requested via additional development request (ADR).

The last page of each of the pended claims categories contains a summary of the total claim count and associated dollar amount for the corresponding SUSP TYPE. Totals are provided for both original claims and adjustment claims.

SUMMARY OF PROCESSED CLAIMS– Second Report Section 

The processed claims identified in this section of the 201 Pend Report are those that we have adjudicated through the FISS DDE to a point of completion.

The following two screen prints show you how the SUMMARY OF PROCESSED CLAIMS section appears on the FISS DDE online system.

The last page of each of the processed claim categories identifies the total number of claims and adjustments.

SUMMARY OF RETURNED CLAIMS– Third Report Section

This section is of particular importance to providers because it identifies all claims that are being returned to the provider or RTP. If a claim appears on this section of the 201 Pend Report, it is no longer considered in the FISS DDE claim inventory (i.e., it is no longer in our system.) Claims identified in this section will never be adjudicated for payment, rejection, or denial unless the provider either:

  • corrects the claim through the online system; or
  • resubmits the claim through normal billing channels.

Claims will appear only once on the SUMMARY OF RETURNED CLAIMS section.

The following two screen prints show how the SUMMARY OF RETURNED CLAIMS section appears on the FISS DDE online system:

Field/Report Heading Description
RTP DATE The date the claim was returned to the provider for correction.
RTP REASON CODE States why the claim has been returned. Locate the code and follow the instructions to correct and resubmit the claim.

The last page of each of the returned claims categories identifies the total number of claims and adjustments that have been RTP.
