Ortho Case

Ortho case information for a patient includes the insurance plan's orthodontic claim defaults and the patient's orthodontic treatment information (total months, total used, time remaining).

In the Account Module, when Show ortho case in account module is enabled, an Ortho Case tab shows next to Patient Account.

Two preferences in Ortho Setup determine if and where Ortho Case information shows:

Ortho Case Tab

Primary/Secondary/Other Ins: Shows the insurance plan's orthodontic claim information as entered on the Insurance Plan, Ortho tab. Double click anywhere in the area to open the Ortho Patient Setup window.

ClaimType: How the carrier wants to receive orthodontic claims (Ortho Claim Type).

The following information may also show:

Pat Ortho Info: Displays the patient's orthodontic information once the initial orthodontic procedure has been completed.

Ortho Chart

When Show ortho case in ortho chart is selected, an Ortho Info grid shows in the upper left corner of the Ortho Chart. It displays the same Pat Ortho Info that shows in the Ortho Case tab (above)
