Preview Bills and Corrections

errors are found, you can correct them and regenerate the invoices.

any mistakes before committing to the results to the Accounts Receivable.
Track Prior Approvals
Track requests for prior approval numbers from HMO Insurance plans that
generally require Prior Approval before they will pay for a patient's stay
Once the Approval is received the home can invoice for the services
provided. Prior Approval information can be included on the invoices or
the electronic submissions.

specific services and medications. The TAR module enables you to submit the
requests for authorization numbers and track those issued.
The Billing program uses the TAR data when billing. The Program will alert the user
to expiring TARs so they can be renewed before the Authorizations lapse and the invoices
