How to Add Coinsurance Details to a Patient Chart

How to Add Coinsurance Details to a Patient Chart

Coinsurance % is the percentage of costs that a patient pays for healthcare service expenses. When a patient has a coinsurance, it means that he or she is financially responsible for a set percentage of the contracted rate.

Adding a patient's coinsurance information to his or her chart will allow you to readily create invoices and claims directly from your zHealth account. The software will pull the stored coinsurance information from the patient's file to help automate this process for you. After an invoice is created for an appointment, the patient responsibility will be reflected in the 
Patient Balance field. This allows you to collect the patient's portion of the bill before the claim is processed.
