F3 Report/Combined Billings Report

F3 Report

Following on from the Combined Billings Report question

Will there be any changes to the F3 report such as the debit column indicating the source of the charges billed through SIS (S) or F12 (F)

Or will the report just show a combined total.

Thanks

Hayley

Dear Hayley,

 

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you on this question. Regarding the below, there will be no change to F3 Report that will effectively provide a combined total of billings.

 

However, indication of invoice source either from SIS or non-SIS (e.g. from existing F12) will be provided from upgraded F1 Report and F1 Report from Debtors as presented to carriers at the ICHUG 2010 in Kuala Lumpur.

 

Please also note that a new ICH e-mail notification "Claim Submission Confirmation" message will provide totals submitted by the carrier either originated from SIS or non-SIS with breakdown by billing category. This new e-mail notification will be first issued at time of end of IS Submission deadline then followed by another round of this e-mail at the end of the Late Submission window. With each e-mail notification, billing carriers having an iiNET account should be able to retrieve the F1 Report and the F1 Report from Debtors directly from iiNET in different file formats incl. an XML version. For carriers not having an iiNET account, F1 reports would have to be run directly from ICH Web or via a link to ICH Web offered though the IS-WEB portal.

 

Please refer to ICHUG 2010 "ICH Changes From SIS" presentation for more details. This document can be found on the SIS website under Supporting Materials.

Kind regards

Dear Hayley,

 

Following my last post, please find a further clarification as follows:

 

There will be a duplicate check for submissions made through SIS and ICH, but not for submissions made through SIS and ACH.

 

For invoices to be settled via ICH, duplicate check will be achieved by ICH :

 

a) by enforcing ICH validation when carriers will submit F12s and ICH Web manual claims during migration period : a warning message at time of submission will alert them when duplicate invoices are identified as compared to SIS invoices previously received,

 

b) by a validation control of duplicates handled by the ICH Ops Mgr who will check and remove any duplicated invoices originated from F12 or ICH Web when those are identified as duplicates. In such case, the billing carrier will get an e-mail message reporting the deleted action with a supporting report identifying the deleted non-SIS originated invoices .

 

For invoices to be settled via ACH, no duplication check is possible as claims submitted to ACH are at summary (F2) level and ACH does not hold the invoice numbers.

 

Kind regards

Dear Hayley,

Please find below a further clarification on the duplicate check by the ICH:

The duplicate check performed by the ICH is done by ICH Operations, rather than as an automated process done by the system without human intervention.

The ICH system will flag all potential duplicates, highlighting those which are perfect duplicates and those which are partial duplicates. Perfect duplicates (all data criteria match) will be reviewed by ICH Operations, and unless there is some human-discernable reason for doubt, the ICH Web versions of the duplicates will all be deleted. An email will automatically be sent to the creditor advising of the deletion. Near-perfect duplicates (many data criteria match, but not all) will not be deleted, but will be queried with the creditor by ICH Operations.

Best regards

Hi

 

If an airline submits an invoice via F12 file to ICH first, then subsequently submits the same invoice via SIS, will the invoice submitted through SIS fail validation or will there be a warning from SIS that it has already received a duplicate invoice via ICH?  

 

Thanks =)

Replied by Ashley H on 2011-05-24 11:13:21

Dear Esther,

 

In this case, the invoice submitted in SIS will not fail validation, nor will there be a flag from SIS on this duplicate invoice. The check for duplicate invoices submitted via F12 and SIS is an ICH process, as had been previously described in this post. The flag for duplicates will be done by the ICH system, not by SIS.

 

Hope this clarifies.

Best regards

Hi
 
Will ACH settlement sheet also have 'indication of invoice source either from SIS or non-SIS'?

Dear Leena,

There will be three sets of ACH Settlement reports.  One set will contain only SIS billings; another set will contain only non-SIS billings; the final set will contain combined amounts.

Best regards
