Daily Report - Posted Date Day Sheet

This report will give you information on charges, payments, taxes, adjustments, write-offs, refunds, deposits, unapplied amounts and finance charges for any given posted date. While the report initially will only show a summary of this information, you can double click on the date to show additional details. The summary and the detailed reports will be covered in more detail below.

The Posted Date reflects the date the transaction was entered into MacPractice and cannot be edited. If you want to change the identifying dates for transactions, this can be done using the Procedure Date. Please see documentation on the Procedure Date Day Sheet report for more information.

This documentation contains the following sections:

Filters
When you first select the Posted Date Day Sheet, you have the opportunity to set filters.
NOTE: If you change your filters, the results in the table below will not change until you click the Apply button.

Providers and Offices
You can filter the report information by provider and office by selecting specific providers/offices in the lists at the top. The report will give you information only for the providers and offices selected.

Once you have set the appropriate filters, click the Apply button to see results.

Results
Initially, you will be presented with a line summarizing all transactions for the day. The first column shows the posted date of all transactions. The posted date reflects the day the items were entered into MacPractice and cannot be edited.
 
Screen_Shot_2017-05-12_at_1.15.47_PM.png

The second column, after the Posted Date column, shows production for the day. Production reflects all charges entered for the day. Taxes, finance charges and positive adjustments are not counted as production. If you are using any of the Provider and/or Office filters, production will be filtered based on the provider listed in the Charge window.
 
Tax: Reflects the amount of sales tax charged that day. The rate at which items are taxed is set in the References ability, by selecting Tax Rate from the sidebar. Click the plus button to create additional sales tax rates. Whether or not tax is charged is determined by whether or not the Taxable checkbox is checked in the Charge window. The rate charged is determined by the rate selected from the pop up menu. Like production, information on tax is filtered by the Charge provider.
 
Adjustments (+): Shows all positive adjustments made for the day. The associated provider is based on the provider listed in the Charge window for the charges associated with the adjustment.
 
Write-Offs: This column gives the total of all write-offs entered for the day for all insurance payments. This information is filtered by the provider listed on the insurance payment associated with the write-off.
 
Refunds: Shows the total of all refunds and reversed payments issued that day. This column filters by the provider listed in the Payment window of the payment associated with the refund. The associated provider is the provider listed when the refund was issued. If the provider was changed after the refund was issued, the refund will maintain the previous provider.

Deposits: Reflects all payments entered for the day and is filtered by the provider listed in the Payment window. The deposits total reflects both applied and unapplied amounts.
NOTE: Negative adjustments and write-offs do not count towards deposits.
 
Unapplied: Shows you the amount of payments entered for the day that were not applied towards a charge. This associated provider is based on the provider listed in the Payment window.
 
Finance Charge: Reflects all finance charges charged for the day. The finance charge is filtered by the provider selected on the patient's Account tab; however, the provider and office may be overridden by editing the finance charge directly on the patient's Account Ledger. 

Gross Adjustment (-): This column reflects all negative adjustments entered for the day. This column counts both applied and unapplied negative adjustments.

  • Procedures
  • Payments
  • Adjustments (+/-)
  • Write-Offs
  • Claims Created
  • Statements Printed
  • Refunds and Reversed Payments
Using the Sort By menu, you can choose to sort the view by Account (patient's account number), Name (patient's name for procedures and primary's name for payments), or the order the transactions were entered into the system.
 
You also can filter the results to show only a single user's actions, by selecting that user from the View User menu.
 
In the main portion of the detail window, you will see a breakdown of that day's activity.

  • Number: The first column in this view shows you the account number associated with the transaction. If the transaction was associated to a specific patient, it will show the full account number for that patient (such as 123-1). If the transaction was associated to the account as a whole, in the case of payments and negative adjustments, it only will show the main account number (such as 123).
  • Patient/Primary Name: The next column shows the name associated with the transaction. It will show the patient's name for patient-specific transactions, and the primary's name for any payments or negative adjustments, as these are applied at the account level. The primary's name will even be shown if it is a payment from the secondary's insurance.
  • Transaction: The third column gives you a description of the transaction. If the transaction was a procedure, it will show the procedure code. If the transaction was a payment, it will tell you what kind of payment it was, (such as Insurance, Check, Cash, and so on).
  • Proc. Date: The fourth column displays the procedure date entered for the transaction. This date pulls from the Procedure Date field for all transaction types. While the Procedure Date field generally defaults to the Posted Date, it can be manually overridden.
  • Prov: The next column shows you the provider and office associated with the transaction, using the unique two character ID code entered in the Provider or Office reference.
  • Charge: This column shows the total charge of the procedure.
  • Pri. Allowed: Here, the Allowed Amount from the patient's Primary Insurance for the charge is displayed.
  • Tax: Any applicable Tax assigned to the charge appears in this column.
  • Total Payment Amount: This is the total amount that was posted on this day.
  • Adj.(+): The total amount that was Positively Adjusted on this day.
  • Adj.(-): The total amount that was Negatively Adjusted on this day.
  • Refund: If any refunds were posted, they will appear in this column.
  • Write-Off: Any Write-Offs that may have been posted will appear here.
  • User ID: This is the ID of the User associated with the line item.
For procedures, this will reflect the provider and office entered in the New Charge window.

Screen_Shot_2017-05-12_at_1.09.43_PM.png

Screen_Shot_2017-05-12_at_1.11.35_PM.png

NOTE: Statements, claims, write-offs, positive adjustments and reverse payments will not have a provider listed.
  • Charge: The Charge column shows the dollar amount of the fee charged for that transaction. Only procedures will have a charge listed.
  • Total Payment Amount: The next column shows the amount of all payments with the selected posted date.
  • Adj. (+): The Adj. (+) column shows the amount of any positive adjustments posted on the selected date.
  • Adj. (-): The Adj. (-) column shows the applied portion of any negative adjustments posted on the given date.
  • Refund: The Refund column shows all refunds created on the selected date.
  • Write-Off: The Write-off column shows the amount of any write-offs entered for the day.
  • User ID: The User ID column shows the two character unique User ID of the user who entered that item.
The bottom of the report shows a total for each of the columns.
 
Below this is information on the total deposit for the day, which is a total of all payments. The Accounts Receivable information always reflects the current A/R in your MacPractice database. Even if you are viewing a past day's report, the A/R reflects all transactions entered in the database. In MacPractice the A/R amount listed here is based on the following formula:

A/R = Production + Tax + Pos. Adj. + Refund + F.C. - Applied Payments - Gross Neg. Adj. - Write Off

Below the preliminary A/R, you can see how much of the money owed is from production and how much is from finance charges. For this one instance, positive adjustments are counted as production. It also will break down what is owed by patient and insurance portions. The Finance Charge Balance reflects the total amount of finance charges open. This will match your A/R report, but may be different than your Day Sheet.

The report then subtracts the unapplied balance from the total owed, for the net A/R. If you are unsure about your A/R, you can use the following formula to determine the amount:

Net A/R = Production + Tax + Pos. Adj. + Refund + F.C. - All Payments - Gross Neg. Adj. - Write Off

Charges

  • Total Payment Amount: The next column displays the full amount of the payment entered, regardless of what is refunded, applied or unapplied. The Refund, Applied, and Unapplied columns should all add up to the amount shown in the Total Payment Amount column. This amount also should match the amount in parenthesis in the Description column.
User ID: Finally, the User ID column shows the unique user ID of the user who entered that item.
 
The bottom of the report shows a total for the payments entered that day. The total payments should match the total for that day when you run the Gross Receipts report, assuming there are no providers that were active when the day sheet was created, and have since been archived or made inactive.

    It may be a good idea to include the Posted Date Day Sheet's location when referenced in the "Deposit Slip" section
