I am tryng to print out receipts and a final balance paid off. We are not taking insurance payments. Using OEMR 4.0 hosted online. Example: A patient is scheduled to see doctor on 11/11/11 and the cost of the visit is $200, assuming today's date is 11/01/11 he makes a pre-payment of $75, the balance is now $125, that he is going to pay on 11/11/11. The question is how am I suppose to take the payments? One encounter per payment? How can I checkout the patient giving him the records of payments and the balance paid off? Thanks in advance!
On 11/1/11 use Fees -> Payments to accept
Paying Entity = Patient
Payment Type = Pre Payment
On 11/11/11 after encounter is created, use Fees -> Payments -> Search Payments to locate and then allocate the amount to newly created encounter.
Then at the checkout time, accept $125.
The receipt will show 2 entries with 0 balance.
Is there an easier way to take payments? basically, we need to take few payments providing receipts each time and at the appointment day once they paid in full give them a 0 balance receipt. Now I can take payments and print out receipts using the Popups located at the left panel but Fees -> Checkout always shows the full balance.
What is the difference between Payment and Checkout options in Fees menu? when to use payment and checkout? Could someone explain the concept?
