Simple Practice NEEDS to automatically fill in 9 digit zips to forms
Answered

It is BEYOND frustrating that we are getting scrub errors due to not having "the full 9 digit zip code" on the claim form. I was told to go to USPS.com to look each one up individually - WELL the thing is that USPS.com does not provide that information. So we are sitting on at least 9 claims that cannot be completed because we are trying to hunt this information down. 

 

I suggest that simple practice uploads all Zip code, mapping and national address information into their system so that providers can actually do their work, instead of hunting down zip codes.

    Hello I deal with the same thing, however I have found a way to get the zip codes.

    https://tools.usps.com/go/ZipLookupAction_input

    If you put in the address, this link will give you the full zip code. 

    I hope this helps.

    That is the link that I have been trying to use but - Its inconsistant in that only some codes show up, and others dont.

    I think that Simple Practice should offer this as a benefit to the amounts that group practices pay. It is frustrating, and it adds a long amount of search work to each Scrubbed claim.
