The FP17PR form is a legal document that's part of a patient's dental records. Ascend makes it easy for the patient to fill in the FP17PR form online prior to their appointment, via their patient portal and for you to keep the completed form online in the document manager.
The ethnicity and exemption details they've filled in will automatically be added to the associated claim, making it quick and easy to get the claim filled in.
The form will also be stored in the document manager, easily accessible if you need to check the patient's details.
