Each service the practitioner provides to a patient represents a chargeable event. Each service must be charged to a specific account holder (patient or organisation).
Different fees might apply for the same service, depending on the patient’s eligibilities (e.g. patient type, age or membership in a scheme).
A consultation may generate one or many billable services. These can be conveniently grouped when they usually occur together e.g. a claim and patient co-payment. These groups are represented by the buttons in the Services menu in the POS screen or in the Other Services list e.g. pressing the Consultation button will create both a consultation fee and a GMS subsidy claim.
Access to setting up services and fees is granted in the User Permissions screen.
Once created, all services can be charged using the Other Services [F10] button in the POS screen.
