1.What is the difference between invoice creation date and invoice creation period?

The invoice creation date asks to see all invoices created on a date or date range, such as 1/1/11, or between 1/1/11 and 1/15/11. The invoice creation period is will show all invoices created in the January 2011 posting period.

2. What is the difference between Reg FSC and Original FSC? Can they be the same?
They are almost always the same.
Reg FSC is what is in registration in the different positions. This can change as new FSCs are added or old ones are deleted.
Original FSC is the FSC that any given invoice began in. After the invoice is created, the original FSC can then be changed any number of times with a paycode 70.

3. Is Original FSC always Reg FSC 1?
They are not always the same. Reg FSC 1 is the default when an invoice is created, so 99% of the time, they are the same. But if you take Work Comp for example, it is never Reg FSC 1, so in data entry, the default is overridden and WC is typed in instead. WC is the original FSC.

4. Is the invoice FSC, the current FSC when the report is run?
Yes

5. Why would someone need the BAR Batch # and the TES Batch #?
The BAR batch # is necessary to find a particular batch that was posted for a certain carrier, or on a certain day etc.
The TES Batch #  is necessary to find all the invoices that were created as a result of a TES batch.

6. What is the difference between the Paycode Posting Date and the Paycode Posting Period?
Same as above. Date is something posted on a specific date or date range. Paycode Period is something posted within a paycode period, e.g. January 2011.

7. Line item posting is where we post a payment or adjustment directly on a transaction line, correct? Isn’t everything posted that way now?
Yes, this is true for posting directly to a charge line, as in insurance payments. This is not true for anything posted in a different way. For example, Per Se is non-line item posted. There is a field in the paycode dictionary called line item posting option. If the paycode has a line item posting option of 1, it is line item posted. If it’s a 2, it is non-line item posted. If it’s a 3, it can be posted either way (This makes it impossible to pull data cleanly. Although it is rarely a problem.)

8. Is Non Line Item posting just posted to the entire invoice?
Yes, this is true for a transaction line rather than a particular CPT on a charge line.

9. If I request a report with Non Line Item posting AND Line Item posting, to make sure I get ALL payments, could I end up with duplicate payments?
The easiest way to make sure you get all payments is to ask for a report that does not include a CPT code. Then, we can just pull payments as non-line item and get everything.
