Ophthalmic Payment System
The Ophthalmic Payments System is the central system which helps opticians to submit claims for NHS work and receive payment, known as GOS claims (which stands for General Ophthalmic Service). It also provides central reporting and fraud detection tools to the NHS, as well as providing the information for the central Optician Directory.
What the service does
The system provides for the entry of all the GOS claim vouchers types.
|Code||What the form is for|
|GOS1||Application for an NHS funded sight test|
|GOS2||Patient's optical prescription or statement|
|GOS3||NHS optical voucher and patient's statement|
|GOS4||NHS optical repair or replacement voucher application|
|GOS5||Help with the cost of a private sight test|
|GOS6||Application for a mobile NHS funded sight test (domicillary visit)|
It can also process hospital eye service vouchers. Sight tests may be recorded individually (where resources permit) as recommended by the Counter Fraud and Security Management Service, or as batched claim records.
The system also provides the facility for opticians with accredited systems to submit electronic files of claims. The NHS organisation/local health board may configure the system to decide how these claims are processed, either automatically or by manual inspection and approval of individual claims.
