Statement Forms are comprised of boxes, columns, and totals that pull information from various areas in MacPractice. The following guide will establish each of these areas within the context of a statement form.

Statement Page Count
The Statement Page Count box on each page of a statement reflects the total number of pages on the statement in entirety.

The Office Address box of a Statement populates from the Office Reference, whether it be the Facility or Office Address. The provider name can also be included. These options can be set in the Preferences - Statements in the "Statement Printing" tab.

Account Number
The Account Number box reflects the account number as assigned to the Patient's account. The same account number will be assigned to each patient on the same account. For more on how Account Numbers are created, please see the documentation on Patients - Adding a New Account.

This date is calculated from the Statement Date. Payments and other credits are deducted from the Previous Balance before computing the Finance Charge.

The Finance Charge and Annual Percentage Rate boxes will be blank if there are no finance charges applied.

Finance Charges, Annual Percentage Rates, and Past Due Days will only be applied on statements printed through the Statement Manager. These boxes are only present on Statement Forms that include Financial Charge information.
