Editing 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 edit 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 whose payment table you want to edit and click Pmt. Table.

The Edit Updated Insurance Payment Table dialog box appears.

3.   Select the code that you want to edit and change the code and/or the amount in the respective fields.

4.   Click Change.

Dentrix changes the code and/or amount in the payment table.

5.   Click OK.
