In order to bill old guarantor/patient balances from a prior software using NowMD, follow these steps:
Create a procedure code called "Patient Balance Forward".
Create a new encounter and add the aforementioned procedure code.
Edit the service line to include the correct amount-the balance due.
Be sure to set the current responsibility to "Guarantor".
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.
