You can specify which procedures are available for posting to the records of patients who are covered by third parties (when the "Third-Party procedures" procedure filter is selected during posting). The "Third-Party procedures" procedure filter is available during posting only if the patient has an active third party attached to his or her record and if the provider who is associated with the procedure is contracted with the patient's third party.
