Spread One Payment to Multiple Dependents
Pay multiple patient/dependent accounts from an Active Patient Account in the Make Payment dialog . Click on the Make Payment button found in several sections within the Patient Account.
Select Dependents for Payment
If the Payer shown in the Payer Details section wants to pay additional patient/dependent accounts within the system, those payments can be applied from one dependent's account in the Make Payment dialog. If the Payer has dependents set up in the Family Tab, they will be in the drop down Add Dependent list. If not, the patient can be accessed by Clicking the Add Patient button and selecting a patient from the Chart Rack.
1. Click the Drop down option to select another patient/dependent from the Payer's Family Tab.
Apply Payment to Dependent(s)
This example shows a $100.00 payment to be distributed between 2 Patient Accounts. The active patient will be listed first and the additional dependent(s) will be listed next.
2. Click the arrow in the Applied column on the charge line item, and type payment amount for the first patient listed.
3. Repeat for the next patient listed. As payments are applied, the Remaining amount is reduced until all has been distributed and the remaining is zero. The Clear Applied button will remove all applied amounts allowing corrections to be made prior to Saving the transaction.
