You can create a pre-authorization (pre-treatment estimate) from a patient's treatment plan, which will be sent to the insurance carrier.
To create a pre-authorization
How to get there
Use the Patient Search box to access a patient's record.
If the last patient record you accessed since you last logged on is the correct patient's record, you do not need to re-enter the patient's name in the Patient Search box.
You can include inactive patients in the search results by setting the Include inactive patients switch to On.
Do one of the following:
On the Patient menu, under Clinical, click (or tap) Treatment Planner.
The patient's clinical record opens with the Tx Planner tab selected.
On the Tx Planner tab of a patient's clinical record, under Active, select a treatment plan.
The procedures (arranged by visit) that are associated with the selected treatment plan appear.
Select the check boxes of the procedures that you want to include on the pre-authorization.
Note: A pre-authorization cannot include procedures from multiple visits. You must create separate pre-authorizations for procedures in separate visits.
Click (or tap) Create Pre-authorization.
The Pre-authorization Detail dialog box appears.
Change the details of the pre-authorization as needed.
Click (or tap) Submit.
