Add a Payment Type

  1. Go to Setup: Billing Setup: Payers



  2.  In the upper right corner, next to the magnifying glass, click on the gear icon to open the Window Settings menu. Go to Setup, then Payment Type. The Payment Type dialog box will open.



  3. To add a New Payment Type when the window first opens, begin working on the right side of the screen. Select the Payment Area, enter a Description of the Payment Type, then check the appropriate boxes.


  4.  Payment Area options are: Allowed, CoPay, Deductible, ERACoIns, ERACoPay, Interest, Payment, WithHeld, WriteOff. If you are adding a Payment Type which should be accessible from the Quick Pay Receipts tab, select Payment. If you are adding a Payment Type to use as an Adjustment Type on claims, select WriteOff.



  5. When selecting check boxes, a previously created Payment Type can be a guide; this will help your new Payment Type operate the same way as a previously created Type.

  6. Checkbox Selection Guidelines: 
    • Selecting Payment Adjustment will make the Payment Type an Adjustment Type. 
    • Selecting both Payment Adjustment and Affects Payment will make a Payment Adjustment Type, which affects cash on reports. 
    • Selecting both Affects Payment and Receipt Indicator will make this a Payment Type available in the Quick Pay Receipts window. 
    • Adding Prepayment means that if the Payment Type is used on a Receipt, the Receipt will not be automatically reconciled via Receipt Posting. 
    • Comment Indicator should only be used with Payment Adjustment; a Comment Adjustment will put a comment on a payment line, but it will not affect the claim balance in any way.

  7. Click Save when you are done. If you need to create another Payment Type, click the New icon, and repeat as above. There is a Delete option; however, only unused Payment Types may be deleted. The screen will show you if the Payment Type is in use.
