Updating Fees for Treatment Planned Procedures

When you change fees in a fee schedule, new procedures will reflect the new fees. However, procedures in active or inactive treatment plans are not automatically updated. There are two update fee options: update fees for all treatment planned procedures at once or update fees one treatment plan at a time. Instructions for both options are explained below.


  • Estimates are automatically updated when creating a Claim.
  • Fees in saved treatment plans are not affected when updating fees.
