You can quickly create claims for procedures that are not attached to third-party claims. Also, you can edit any unattached procedure before you create a claim for that procedure.
Tip: You can create a claim for a patient's procedures while performing a patient checkout.
To create claims
How to get there
On the Home menu, under Third-Parties, click (or tap) Create Claims.
The Create Claims page opens.
On the Create Claims page, do one of the following:
To create claims for all procedures for all patients listed, leave the All check box at the top of the page selected.
To create claims for specific procedures for a specific patient, clear the All check box at the top of the page, and then, under the appropriate patient's name, select the check boxes of the procedures to include or the All check box to include all procedures.
Note: For an unattached procedure to appear on the Create Claims page, the service date of that procedure must fall within the coverage dates of a patient's third-party plan, that procedure must be marked as billable to a third party, and that procedure must be attached to an invoice.
To edit a procedure before creating a claim for it, click (or tap) the procedure code link, make the necessary changes, and then click (or tap) Save.
To hide the procedures and show only the patient names, click (or tap) Collapse All.
To hide or show the procedures for a specific patient, click (or tap) the header with that patient's name.
Next to each patient who has procedures for which you are creating claims, select the Billing Provider for the claims that will be created for the selected procedures. Only providers who have access to the current location are available.
Select the Place of Service for the claims that will be created for the selected procedures.
Click (or tap) Create Claims.
For each patient with procedures selected, separate claims are created for the service dates of the selected procedures.
For example, Billy has six unattached procedures selected with varying service dates:
Procedure 1 - 10/10/2013
Procedure 2 - 10/10/2013
Procedure 3 - 11/11/2013
Procedure 4 - 11/11/2013
Procedure 5 - 11/11/2013
Procedure 6 - 12/12/2013
Three claims will be created (one for procedures 1 - 2, one for procedures 3 - 5, and one for procedure 6).
