Pubic Billing Settings allows a clinic to set their default billing status for outgoing Insured Billing Items.
Navigate to Settings > Billing > Public Billing Settings
Set the Dropdown to READY or DRAFT
Your default billing status refers to the status of your bill as soon as it is generated.
Draft: A status of draft means once your bill has been created, you will need to manually change the status to Ready to submit
Ready: A status of ready means once your bill has been created and associated with a signed encounter it will automatically submitted without intervention on your end.
Changing the default status per user.....
If you want to change your 'public billing' status to something different than the rest of the clinic, navigate to the Insured Billing Section Section Settings, which can be found within a patient's chart.
