Validator Features

The New Validator comes in 4 Editions

WE OFFER THE NEW VALIDATOR 6 IN FOUR DIFFERENT EDITIONS TO SUIT THE VARYING NEEDS OF OUR MANY CLIENTS! YOU STILL ENJOY ALL OF THE BENEFITS THAT THE VALIDATOR HAS ALWAYS OFFERED, BUT CAN NOW OBTAIN THE PROGRAM IN THE EDITION THAT MEETS YOUR PARTICULAR NEEDS AND BUDGET.

 

  • Validator 6 Foundation – A new version of Validator just released for those practices who are happy with their clearing house but need a better solution for sending claims and receiving reports. This version works with one clearing house of your choice. $499
  • The Lite Edition is a full featured version of the program with licenses for up to two (2) carrier modules. (This could be just two insurance carriers, like Medicare and BCBS, or it could be one insurance carrier and the Availity all-payer solution for 1400 or more insurance companies!) We also support connecting directly to clearinghouses such as Capario, Gateway EDI, and Office Ally.
  • The Standard Edition is the same as the Lite, but has additional licenses for as many carrier modules as are applicable for one state. The Standard version will allow you to send claims directly to as many carriers as we have for your state. The Activation Key for this version is also tied to the submitter ID number you obtain from the carrier.
  • The Professional Edition allows for UNLIMITED carriers across all states, including carriers that PSS has yet to create a carrier module for. Using a simple, step-by-step wizard, you can create your own additional carrier modules for any carrier that you wish to send claims to that accepts the new ANSI 5010 format with NO NEED TO CALL PSS. The Activation Key is tied to your computer, so you may add and remove carriers at will with no need to call for additional Activation Keys. In addition this version allows you to add CPT to ICD9 cross-walk checking capabilities to your Validator program. The Validator will then warn you if you have not used the correct ICD9 code with a specific CPT code, and will display a list of valid codes to choose from!
