This is a quick reminder about the upcoming changes to paper GOS forms and information about moving online, including an invitation to book your place on the next PCSE webinars.
New style paper GOS forms – less than a week to go
If you haven’t made the switch to online GOS yet, please be aware that all paper GOS claims dated from 1 February 2021 must be submitted using the new style scannable GOS forms. New paper GOS forms, are available to order from the PCSE portal.
Old paper GOS forms should only be used for any claims up until 31 January 2021 – any claims after this date using the incorrect form will be rejected.
If you are planning on using the new paper forms instead of submitting claims online we have created a number of video guides which will be available on the PCSE YouTube channel during this week. Please note, the paper scanning process is automated, which means that forms with missing or incorrect data will be automatically rejected and returned, even if the error seems minor.
You must download new style batch headers here and attach them to new paper forms. If you are sending paper claims for sight tests carried out prior to 1st February, you should use the old forms but these must be submitted separately with the old style batch headers to ensure they can be processed effectively.
Not yet moved to online GOS claims?
If you have not moved to online GOS via your PMS or directly via PCSE Online yet make it a priority this week to avoid your staff having to adapt to the new style forms on 1st February.
By moving online you will be joining over 50% of optical practices throughout England who are already benefitting from:
No rejected claims – The system checks that you’ve completed all mandatory fields before you submit the claim
Detailed monthly statements – Reconciliation has never been easier. Monthly statements include payments by claim type and even link back to individual claims
Saving time and money – Reduced resource costs to manually process and post claims
