Billing Center: Statement Queue

Version 14.19

About Billing Center: Statements (Queue) Tab

Path: Billing tab > Billing Center button > Statements (Queue) tab

The Billing Center is the one-stop location in Office Practicum where claims are tracked. It lets you view claims from the time they are created until the time they are paid.

The Statement Queue tab displays all patient statements that are ready to be sent. The statements can be sent individually or in bulk. Statements remain under this tab until you delete or send/print them, so you can let them accumulate for the whole day, or even until the end of the week, before printing everything all at once.
