Provider Type - The type of Provider who rendered the services.

Expected - The mandated reimbursement amount per California’s Official Medical Fee Schedule (OMFS). The Expected is calculated using the fee schedules in effect for the entered Date of Service. The Expected reimbursement amount incorporates fee-affecting workers' comp billing ground rule calculations (eg., surgical cascading, MPPR, NCCI, MUE) and modifiers. OMFS reimbursement amount does not calculate contracted or network discounts.

Payment Amount - The reimbursement amount allowed by the claims administrator as reported on an explanation of review (EOR) and entered in the Payment Total field on the previous screen. If not provided, this optional field defaults to $0. The Payment Amount is used to calculate the Expected %.

Balance Due - The Expected reimbursement amount minus the amount entered in the Payment Amount field. Balance Due represents the Expected reimbursement amount minus the Payment Amount.

Expected % - Calculation of the amount in the Payment Amount field divided by Expected reimbursement amount. Viewing Expected % helps quickly identify discounts being taken by the payer.
