You use billing item templates when you bill patients and/or third parties using Third-party billing. For more information see Third-party billing.
By default, your clinic has one third-party and one private billing template in your CHR: Third Party and Private Pay (see Private and third-party billing code templates).
You can add additional custom billing templates as required. For example, add a custom billing template for an insurance company that uses different billing codes than you typically use.
You can add custom fee codes to your billing template, refer to Private and third-party billing code templates.
