You can specify which procedures are available for posting to the records of patients who are covered by insurance carriers (when the "Carrier procedures" procedure filter is selected during posting). The "Carrier procedures" procedure filter is available during posting only if the patient has an active insurance plan attached to his or her record and if the provider who is associated with the procedure is contracted with the patient's carrier.
Note: Customizing the available procedures for insurance carriers requires the "Edit Carriers" security right.
