CentralReach’s “Patient Responsibility” or “PR AMT” is the cumulative sum of the insurance copayment/copay, the coinsurance, and the deductible amounts the client is monetarily responsible to pay, for the services provided. “Patient Responsibility” was previously referred to in CentralReach as “Copay.”
Billing CentralReach’s “Patient Responsibility”
Coinsurance is a client’s share of the costs of a healthcare service. It is usually figured as a percentage of the amount a client is to be charged for services. A client would start paying coinsurance after they have paid their plan’s deductible. In CentralReach, the coinsurance amount is included as part of the Patient Responsibility or PR AMT in billing screens and client invoices.
A copay is a fixed amount a client is responsible for paying for a health care service and is usually paid when the service is received. The amount can vary by the type of service. In CentralReach, the copay amount is included as part of the Patient Responsibility or PR AMT in the billing screens and client invoices.
A deductible is an amount a client is responsible for paying for health care services before the health insurance begins to pay. In CentralReach, the deductible amount is included as part of the Patient Responsibility or PR AMT in billing screens and client invoices.
Billing / Scheduling Enable Schedulers to Convert Other Employees’ Appointments
The following permission can be granted in the Permissions module, under the Billing module’s permissions list, for employees, such as the person responsible for scheduling all of your organization’s appointments, to convert other employee appointments into timesheets:
- Billing > Manage Timesheets
- Manage timesheets on behalf of other employees and clients in their network. This includes converting appointments, add/edit others’ timesheets, view billed rates, as well as override authorization over-billing restrictions
These employees also need to have permission to manage other employees’ calendars, which is enabled via the Scheduling module. Permissions to view or manage calendars can be established via Contact Forms, so new users added to CentralReach already have these permissions enabled based on your Contact Form.
