New

      • For Non Orthodontic plans, only the patient schedule will be available.

Improvements

  • Financials
    • Ability to clear the adjustment code field while creating an Orthodontic payment plan.
    • A column for ‘ICD 10 Code’ was added on the Create Predetermination grid so that linked diagnostic codes to planned/proposed treatments are visible when creating a predetermination.
    • Contracts (Non Orthodontic or Orthodontic) for Patient Payment Plans
      • The icons to create a contract or view existing contracts have been moved to the Patient Schedule lines, rather than being in the top right corner of the Payment Plan.
  • Insurance
    • The system now checks patient demographic requirements when you start to add an insurance policy to a patient, instead of when you attempt to save the association.
