The Diagnosis and Billing Section is used to send an electronic superbill to the billing department. Using this Element is quite simple. Start with the Diagnoses portion at the top then click the green plus if there is a new diagnosis for the patient. MacPractice has the ability to have a custom selection of diagnoses codes per EMR Template. Select a diagnosis code for the patient.
If the problem is reoccurring, add it to the problem list by clicking Add Problem. If an existing diagnosis code needs to be used for the encounter, click the upward arrow to add it to the list.
Once all the diagnosis codes have been added to the Element, click the green plus to add a procedure. MacPractice can show a preselected list of procedures in this list or you can use the search button to search through your fee schedule. Select one code or use the Command button on your keyboard to select multiple codes. Click Okay to add the codes to the Element.
Once everything has been added, click Review and Bill. The following window will allow you to set up the details for the code before it gets sent to billing. If the dates and procedures are different, uncheck the boxes at the top of the window and make the appropriate changes. Add in any additional modifiers and notes. Once all procedures have been complete, click Create Order. This will send a Careslip to the billing department.
