Introduction to Menu Options: Add Non-Treatment Charge
There are times when a change needs to be entered for a patient, even though they are not receiving any treatment on that day. For instance, a patient needs to purchase a lumbar roll or other supplies but is not going to be treated. The Non-Treatment Charge menu option is used to facilitate this. Choosing Add Non-Treatment Charge produces the following dialog:
The charge is entered as normal, and the DOS will appear in the display grid without a time of service. This DOS will proceed through the billing cycle as normal. Because this is not a treatment visit, however, the visit will not be counted toward the patient's EPS, Approved Visits, or policy Visit Limit. Even non-treatment visits can be billed to insurance, as long as the CPT codes used are not designated as Non-Insurance Billable.
