Permissions: You must have Billing Permissions.
An Invoice must be created in order for a Client to pay for their Appointment or for you to bill to Insurance. Creating an Invoice is how you bill for an Appointment.
To correctly bill in TheraNest, ensure you are creating Invoices for EACH Appointment. You can create Invoices from 3 places in TheraNest, the Agenda, the Client Ledger, and through Batch Invoicing. It is recommended that invoices are created from the Agenda using Add Invoice to ensure the invoice is connected to the appointment.
After an Invoice is created you can accept/apply a payment.
AMA CPT® Licenses
Practice management and EHR organizations are now legally required to collect annual licensing fees for Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) codes on behalf of the American Medical Association (AMA). To comply with this requirement, staff members that need to be added as a Rendering Provider on invoices in TheraNest will need to have a paid CPT license for the current year. Each staff member’s CPT license lasts for one year and will automatically renew each January 1 if the staff member is active and has not had their CPT® Code Access turned off in staff details. For more information, review CPT® Codes & American Medical Association Fees FAQ.
