Briefing: Central Billing Events Repository (CBER)

Date:23 March 2010

Time:1010 – 1100


Presentation objectives

Presentation Objectives

  • Provide an overview of the planned process for transitioning to the provision of billing data through the Central Billing Events Repository (CBER)

    • Current state of MHS Billing Operations

    • Integrated Requirements and Design (IRD)

    • CBER Concept

    • Benefits

    • Status TPOCS


Current state of mhs billing operations

Current State of MHS Billing Operations

  • Each Service performs its own TPCP, MSA, and MAC billing using a combination of CHCS, TPOCS, E-Premis, and contractor systems.

  • Encounters and orders from 400+ business locations (DMIS IDs) are stored in 102 databases controlled by CHCS.

  • Third party outpatient data flows from CHCS to TPOCS

  • Many functions including inpatient third party, MSA, and MAC billing remain largely manual processes.

  • Charge Master Base Billing (CMBB) was the initial attempt to address problems.

Current State of MHS Billing Operations – cont.

CFO disapproved Defense Business Transformation certification in June 2007 for a CMBB System

Proposed CMBB system did not meet full requirements (e.g., electronic Pharmacy billing was not included)

Costs for full functionality unknown, along with return on investment (ROI)

Each Service building separate Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Systems

Unclear how CMBB would interface with ERPs

Solution: Develop a repository of billing data that will feed Service billing solutions

Integrated requirements and design process

Integrated Requirements and Design Process

  • Formal Integrated Requirements and Design (IRD) Working Group chartered to develop a Concept of Operations (CONOPS) for a Central Billing Events Repository (CBER)

    • Formed in 2009

    • Completed CONOPS and high-level functional requirements in January 2010

    • CONOPS in costing

  • Participants: TMA and Service Uniform Business Office (UBO) Program Managers and representatives from HB&FP, IM, SPEAR, DHSS, DHIMS, and DT&E

  • TMA subgroup will continue to decompose project actions and provide guidance throughout implementation phases


Ird scope

IRD Scope

  • Determine the data to the extent possible and the solution pathway needed for central provisioning of billing event data by TMA in order for the Services to perform billing and collections for the Third Party Collection Program (TPCP), Medical Services Account (MSA), and Medical Affirmative Claims (MAC) cost recovery programs.


Ird scope limits

IRD Scope Limits

  • Primary goal of this activity is central collection, processing, and provision of billing data to best extent possible for downstream Service billing activities.

  • Items out of scope of this project’s activities include:

    • Direct submission of electronic claims to payers

    • General Ledger, Accounts Receivable and other specific financial system type activities

    • Direct Collection activities such as denial management, resubmission of claims

    • Coordination of Benefits activities

    • Billing for Non Med-Fixed (Deployed) Medical Activities

    • Although medical information related to MAC claims will be available, much of MAC remains a manual activity outside scope of simple central data provisioning


High level cber concept

High Level CBER Concept

  • Collect and process appropriate data into a Central Billing Events Repository (CBER)

    • Use existing/updated data feeds between MHS source systems and the MHS Data Repository (MDR)

    • Supplement these feeds as needed

    • Leverage existing infrastructure and processes to the greatest extent possible

    • Place TPC, MSA, and MAC related data in the CBER

    • CBER will include Billing Rate Tables, Reference Files, and HIPAA 837-I, 837-P, and NCPDP D.0 Files

  • Services will have access to the CBER information in various ways and have the flexibility to conduct billing and collections operations as they see fit via Service Billing Solution

Cber phased implementation plan

CBER Phased Implementation Plan

  • Phase 1 (ECD Q2 FY11)

    • Implement enhancements/changes to MDR data feeds from source systems

    • Add new data elements to existing feeds (SIDR*, Ancillary, etc)

    • Ingest new data feeds to MDR (SIT, OHI, DMHRSi, NPPES, etc)

  • Phase 2 (ECD FOC Q4 FY11)

    • Integrate data from Phase 1 into MDR processing to produce MDR based Central Billing Events Repository (CBER) in billing data oriented SAS data sets

    • Incorporate / Modify reference files and rate tables as needed

    • Leverage existing MDR/M2 infrastructure and processing as much as possible

    • Enhance existing infrastructure as needed

    • Incorporate SAS Integration Technologies to enhance user access to MDR data sets

CBER Phased Implementation Plan – cont.

  • Phase 3 (ECD FOC Q3 FY12)

    • Create a billing events repository database that will provide a pathway for data use in a variety of formats

    • Database will be populated by MDR processed data feeds

    • Create a Business Objects (BOXi) CBER universe for user access and reports

    • Leverage DB2 BCU based database and BOXi shared infrastructure as much as possible

    • Enhance existing infrastructure as needed

  • Phase 4 (ECD ?? FY14/FY15 ?? Tied to EHR Way Ahead)

    • Create a CBER data provisioning service through MHS ESB that will allow subscription to the data service

End state benefits

End-State Benefits

  • Consistent access by Services to high-quality billing data

  • Continued provision of data if MHS legacy systems are changed or replaced

  • Supports multiple COTS billing systems and business practices among the Services

  • Congruent with MHS architecture strategy

  • Provides improvements / update to entire business data access and reporting environment


Tpocs 5010 ncpdp risk mitigation

TPOCS 5010/NCPDP Risk Mitigation

  • Given amount of work to be done to implement the CBER and 5010 Implementation data of 1 January 2012:

  • IRD working group recommended update to TPOCS for 5010 and NCPDP D0 output

  • ECD FOC Q3 2011

  • Cost = $450K

    • $169K for 837I output

    • $169K for 837P output

    • $112K for NCPDP output

  • DHSS provided cost estimates (confidence is good)

  • Insurance policy buys 22 months to beginning of FY14 (1 Oct 2013) to get CBER work done through at least Phase 3.

  • Should allow adequate time to transition numerous billing activities to other pathways.

  • Do not forget that FY14/FY15 takes us deep into “EHR Way Ahead” and ICD 10 mandates so we need to get well into new billing methods prior to FY14.

  • Need to be off TPOCS prior to ICD10 implementation in FY14


Cber summary

CBER Summary

  • Goal

    • Provide a central repository of healthcare service, patient (including other health insurance), provider, and reference data to support Service defined and managed billing and collection solutions.

  • General Concept

    • Data feeds to the Medical Data Repository (MDR) will be modified to provide data needed for billing. MDR will provide data transformation and formatting to build a Billing Events Repository. Services will receive data for their respective MTFs.

  • Status

    • Concept of Operations completed. Detailed data requirements and business rules for transformation and loading underway. Initial system-level testing planned for mid CY2011.
