3. My computer is locked up, what do I do?
If the computer is completely locked and your mouse and keyboard are not responding, it is likely that your Windows operating system has frozen. You will have to reboot your computer by either:
When Windows crashes, your computer may perform a scan disk operation when it starts up to ensure that there won't be problems with the hard drive. Once Windows has restarted, there are a couple of things that you need to do when you go back into your program:
- using the CTRL-ALT-DEL key combination on the keyboard
- manually restarting the computer
- If you are on a network, make sure that that only one person is actually in the program.
- Go to the Utilities and select the menu item Reset Network Flags. The program will tell you when this is done.
- Then go back to Utilities and select Re-Index Data Base. Once the re-index is completed you can begin using the program again.
DC-Max: The Complete Chiropractic Office Management System
1. What will happen if I download the Remittance file from MB Health more than once?
Nothing, as long as you do not run function Billing -> MHSC -> Remittance Advice Report and run the upload more than once. You can print the report as often as you like but do NOT run the Upload more than once.
If you did run the Upload more than once, you have a bit of a problem, as all the patients will be showing double payments. This can be fixed by:
- Going to the Ledger and doing a negative payment for each patient that was doubled up, ensuring that your transaction date is the same date as your upload.
- Send the data to us and we can fix it for a minimal fee.
2. How do I enter a Credit for a patient?
If you do not want to affect your revenues, just enter a payment for the patient in the ledger screen.
If you want to credit the revenues for a certain patient, then you would enter a negative invoice.
In both cases you will want to ensure that your dates are correct.
3. How do I do a resubmission to MHSC?
This is done in SimPC. You will do a submission as usually, just ensure that the extension that you want to send is entered in the extension field in SimPC.
4. I get a "File not found error" when trying to submit in SimPC.
You will want to check the following before calling support:
- To ensure that the file was created go to function Reports -> MHSC Billing -> Submitted File Exchange and then accept. This will bring up a list of exchange files. The latest files are at the bottom of the list. Look for the date that it was created and the extension that you are trying to submit. That is, if you are looking for the file with the extension b04, then you will look for the file extension b04. If the file does not exist just create it again.
- If the file is found you will then want to ensure that the exchange file is in the correct directory.
- Go to function Files -> Configuration where you set-up the Transmission directory and the Returns directory. It is very important that both SimPC and DC-Max are looking at the same directory. Ensure that SimPC is looking in this directory.
- If the directories are different you will want to try find the file by going to the Find function off the Start menu in Windows. Go to Start -> Find -> Files or Folders. At Named enter filename you are looking for (ie *.b04). Also ensure that you look in My Computer.
- If found copy that file into the transmission directory as found in Files -> Configuration.
- If the file is not found, the file was not actually created.
