Hello everyone, today I’m going to go ahead and show you how to change your receiver code here in Revenue Management. We’ve been getting a lot of phone calls lately on how to get that changed due to the fact that Medicare has pretty much said, “Hey, we have a new code to use, you’ll need to go ahead and update that with your software.” Here is a quick look on how to change the receiver code.

Basically what you would do is you would open up your Revenue Management program, I have mine opened up here and you’re going to click on the Configure tab on the top. Once you clicked on Configure you’re going to go ahead and click on the Receivers, this is going to take you to the Receivers.

Within Receivers you’re going to look for Medicare and you’re going to go over to the row that say … or the column that says Header, then you’re going to click on the row for Medicare … or Headers. Once you click on that it’s going to open up the Contact Info information, your Interchange, and so forth, you’re going to scroll down to where it says Functional Group and you’re going to look for the Application Receiver Code, GS03.

To change that you’re just going to click on where the previous code is and you’re going to put in the new one. Once you put in the new code you’re just going to go ahead and click Save and you are good to go, and that’s how you change the Receiver Code here in Revenue Management.
