The Expense Reimbursement Dashboard, located on FM Connect, provides additional line of sight into the expense reimbursement process through 24/7 access to self-serve reporting. The Dashboard provides details on claims submitted within LoanSphere Invoicing™ within the last 13 months. The Dashboard provides information on claims and IRT volume and trends, attorney’s Excess Fees and Costs (both pre-approval requests and denial reasons) and claim-type and expense-type curtailment and denials rates.
To obtain access to the Expense Reimbursement Dashboard:
1. Request access to FM Connect.
2. Request access to the Dashboard reporting.
Claim decisioning, including determining if a claim is eligible for auto-approval, is based on whether there are exceptions triggered for review. If no exceptions are triggered, the claim is eligible for auto-approval. A claim with one or more exceptions requires manual intervention prior to decisioning.
The Expense Reimbursement Dashboard Exception Dictionary contains information on exceptions and, if it is visible on the claim to the servicer, provides actions to remedy the exception. Generally, an exception is not visible to the servicer when it can be overriden only by Fannie Mae internal validation.
