Each clinic has a pre-built default third-party billing template called Third Party and a private billing template called Private Pay. You can configure these templates or add additional ones. These templates are used when billing from the Insured Billing section of the TELUS Collaborative Health Record (CHR).
When you choose this billing template while creating your bill, you can search and select a code from the billing code list that you have configured.
To configure the billing template, you can manually add codes or link to an established billing code list, such as provincial fee items.
From the main menu, click Settings > Billing.
Under Billing Item Template click the gear icon. A Billing Providers window opens.
Click +Add to create a new template or click an existing template's name to edit it. The Edit Payment Issuer window opens.
If you are creating a new template, visit Creating new third-party and private billing templates.
