Using Universal Office to complete your forms means using preset templates and a system that automatically draws pre-existing information into each form to make your job easier. Filling these forms out to follow the MIG is no exception.
Let’s look at it this way – completing the OCF-23 is, for the most part, very similar to completing the OCF-18, with the exception of section 5 (Parts 9, 10, and 11). When working on an OCF-23, Universal Office checks the patient’s entered accident date, and based on that date adjusts the form’s intake fields. For example, if the accident date is before September 1, 2010, then Part 9 –Guideline Services is adjusted for WAD1or 2 service only. Completion of Part 10 – Other Health Providers and Part 11 – Other Goods and Services are then available for input as well.
If the patient’s accident date is on or after September 1, 2010, Part 9 is adjusted for MIG service only, and Part 10 and 11 are restricted input and therefore unavailable, as they are not applicable. Using Universal Office means never wondering if you are filling out the proper sections of an OCF – if you aren’t already, give it a try today!
