In Fee Tools, at the lower left, is an Import button.
Fees can be imported into fee schedules (e.g. if insurance sends a new fee schedule). For the fee to import, the corresponding code must already exist in the Procedure Codes.
Usually, it is easiest to manually enter or edit fees in a fee schedule instead of importing it (create the fee schedule, nine-key in the fees). Often the fee schedules provided to offices have no standard format. Thus, taking a PDF, printed fee schedule, or custom formatted fee list and editing it for import can be difficult. Large offices may have IT staff handle fee schedules import, but in general, importing fees is a technical process and advanced feature.
File Format Requirements: Fees must be saved as a tab delimited file (txt file is preferred). To see an example of the correct file format, export the fees (Fees Export). When opened with Notepad, it will look similar to this:
To import fees into an existing fee schedule:
If fees were cleared prior to importing, only the imported fees will remain. If fees were not cleared prior to import, any existing fees will be overwritten with imported fees and procedure codes that did not contain a fee in the import will remain unchanged.
To apply updated fees to treatment planned procedures, see Fees Update.
