Merge Billing Types

The Merge Billing Types tool can be used to merge duplicate billing types.

In the Main Menu, click Tools, Misc Tools, Merge Billing Types.

A billing type is assigned to each patient, but can optionally be assigned to procedures, clinics, insurance plans, and dunning messages. When merging billing types, the billing type that is kept is used in these places.

To merge billing types:

  1. Billing Type to merge into: Use [...] to select the billing type to keep. The billing type entered below merges into this one.
  2. Billing Type to merge from: Use [...] to select the billing type to remove.
  3. Merge: Click to merge billing types. A confirmation message appears warning the user this action cannot be undone.
  4. Click Yes to continue. Once done, a successful message displays.

Once the merge is complete, anywhere the Billing Type to merge from (Step 2) is in use is replaced with the Billing Type to merge into (e.g., patients' billing types are reassigned, etc). The Billing Type to merge from is marked Hidden in Definitions: Billing Types. Billing types used in automation are not updated. Automation should be reviewed after merging types.
