In the insurance 101 video it states to attach insurance fee schedules to the insurance not the individual person. Is there a way for the ledger fees to show the insurance contracted fee schedule instead of the office fee for more accurate estimates and less write offs? Any tips/advice on this would be greatly appreciated.
Yes, you are correct. If you want to use the contracted fees on your patient ledger and in treatment planning, then you want to attach the fee schedule to the insurance plan. When you attach the fee schedule to the insurance plan then make sure the fee schedule up in the patient demographics section is clicked to NONE
Remember that the fee schedule in the patient demographics section overrides the insurance plan fee schedule.
Hope this helps,
