You can create a PDF invoice to print, email or fax to the patient or third party. This can be done at the time of payment, or after.

To customize your invoice template, see Third-party invoice templates. You cannot edit the private pay invoice used for private billing. If you need to edit the private pay invoice you must do all private billing in the insured billing section. Some clinics have an insured billing template called Private Pay for this reason.

📌 Note: If you are creating the invoice at the same time as the bill, start at step 4.
