Charges for the Newly Imported (Delayed Claims)

The following process is for Self-Service Members. RevServe/RevEquip Members, please email updates@webpt.com to add new procedure codes.

Charges held for the Charges for the Newly Imported delay reason contain procedure codes that are not part of your company fee schedule. These procedure codes were added to the note by the therapist and do not match any of the codes already in WebPT Billing. Dates of Service with a related ZZZZZ procedure code will not bill. The entire visit will be held until the Z code is either updated or deleted from Error Corrections, so it's crucial that you work this delay reason often.

Why do these procedure codes not appear on the Incomplete Constants report?

The Incomplete Constants report contains codes that already existed on the Procedure Codes page prior to the code importing from the patient’s note in the EMR. Because this report only shows codes that are already part of your fee schedule, but are incomplete for some reason ( see full details here), you won’t see codes that the system has not seen before. These exclusively appear on the Charges for the Newly Imported delay list.
