Insurance Payment Tables

An insurance payment table is a list of procedures and what a payer pays for each of those procedures. For the first phase of the payment tables feature, you can add, edit, and remove procedures, and insurance estimates are not affected; that will be implemented in the next phase. When this feature is fully implemented, if a procedure is listed in the payment table, the fee for that procedure will override the coverage percentage in the coverage table for the same procedure.

Note: There are certain situations when you would not want to allow the payment table to be used for a procedure: the patient’s deductible has not been met or the patient’s maximum benefits have been met.

To set up an insurance plan’s payment table, do the following:

1. On the Home menu, select Carriers.

2. Click a carrier to view the associated insurance plans.

3. Click an insurance plan to view the plan’s options.

4. Click Payment Table.
