In order to bill old guarantor/patient balances from a prior software using NowMD, follow these steps:
  1. Create a procedure code called "Patient Balance Forward".
  2. Create a new encounter and add the aforementioned procedure code.
  3. Edit the service line to include the correct amount-the balance due.
  4. Be sure to set the current responsibility to "Guarantor".
  5. Test by previewing a statement for the Guarantor.
NOTE:  When there is a balance due from an insurance carrier, continue to bill the claim using the old software until there is only a guarantor/patient balance due.

The actual procedures that created the resulting balance due will not be present on the NowMD statement.  Should the guarantor/patient question the balance due, refer to the prior software for specific details/procedures/services that were performed.
