Who are Insurers?
In this guide document an Insurer might be a Lawyer, a School, an Insurance Company, or a Government Agency. In Jane any payer who is not the patient would be considered under this umbrella term of “Insurer”.
Create a Product
To bill to an insurer without booking the patient for an appointment, start by creating a product. For example, you might create a product called “Phone Call.” The charge can be your customary private rate, as if you’re billing to an insurer with a fee code.
Sell the Product
Head over to the Patient’s Profile using the Patient tab at the top.
Find the patient under whom you’d like to bill a fee code.
Head to their “Billing” Tab and choose the “New Purchase” button at the top right of the screen.
Select the product from the search bar and then hit “Add Product.”
The product will now show up as an invoice line in the patient’s billing list.
Assign the Product
Select the View button at the end of the billing line.
Start by assigning this purchase to a staff member, if appropriate. Use the pencil “Edit” button to pull up a list to choose from.
Insure the Product
Scroll down to the “Insurance” section and select the claim from the drop down menu. (See here for more information on setting up a patient claim) and choose the claim responsible for the charge. If this is a Teleplan insurer, enter the correct fee code for the charge. To add a second code, just repeat these two steps.
Continue scrolling down to see the invoices that will be charged to the insurer.
