Adding a payment table

You can use a payment table when an insurance carrier always pays the same fee for a procedure, rather than a percentage. Dentrix can automatically update the insurance payment table whenever you receive payments from a carrier to maintain the accuracy of the table and to facilitate calculating insurance estimates.

To add a payment table

1.   In the Maintenance menu in the Office Manager, point to Reference, and then click Insurance Maintenance.

The Insurance Maintenance dialog box appears.

2.   Select the insurance carrier that you want to add a payment table to and click Pmt. Table.

The Edit Updated Insurance Payment Table dialog box appears.

3.   Under Code, type the procedure code and then press the Tab key.

Dentrix provides the Description.

4.   Under Amount, type the fee that the selected insurance carrier pays for the procedure, and then click Add.

Dentrix adds the code and amount to the payment table.

5.   Click OK.
