CDA Part 1 - Dentist's Fee
The information for this box pulls differently based on whether or not the Add Lab Fees to Patient Portion checkbox is selected.


Checked
When checked, this box allows the addition of the Lab Fee portion to your Unit Fee for billing the patient.

When Insurance Estimating is on, this will also put the Lab amount in the Patient Portion and will not be reflected in the Estimate.

If Insurance Estimating is not used, the entire charge amount will be in the Insurance Portion while the claim is open.

Unchecked
When unchecked, the unit Fee is the Total Fee billed on the claim. The Lab Fee is the Lab Charge amount. The Lab Fee gets added to the Unit Fee to calculate the Dentist's Fee.

Unit Fee + Lab Fee = Debit/Total Fee

When Insurance Estimating is on, since the Unit Fee is the entire amount for both Procedure and Lab, the Lab is Included in the Estimate.

If Insurance Estimating is not used, the entire charge amount will be in the Insurance Portion while the claim is open.

CDA Part 1 - Laboratory Charge
There are two ways the Laboratory Charge can pull information. It can pull so that a single line displays the fee and the charge on one line. It can also pull so that the Laboratory Charge is billed on a separate line.

Single Line
For some procedures the procedure with its associated Dentist Fee and Laboratory Charge should be printed on one line.



The Laboratory Charge should be entered in the Lab Code Box in the New Charge Window. Enter the Charge in the Fee field.


Note:
 It is possible to permanently attach a Lab Code to a Procedure. References > Fee Schedules > Select the Code > Specialty Tab > CDA Lab Code, click the green plus and add your Lab Code here.


Multiple Lines
Some procedures may require that a Laboratory Charge is billed on a separate line.

Enter the office code first in the charge window. If additional lab materials are used for the office procedure enter this in the lab fee box in the bottom right hand corner and it will print on the same line as the procedure. Then click the plus button at the bottom of the charge window to enter another procedure line item. Enter the lab code in the procedure box. The procedure code and lab code now print on two lines on the claim.
