Payment Splits (paysplits) allow income to be allocated to clinics, production, providers, or unearned income types.

In the Payment window, click Add, or double-click an existing paysplit to edit.

To change paysplit settings, see Allocations Setup.

Entry Date: The date the paysplit is created. This date cannot be changed.

Payment Date: The payment date as entered on the Payment window.

Amount: The portion of the total payment to allocate to this paysplit.

Unearned Type: Used to designate this split as as Unearned / Prepayment (e.g. prepayments). If there is no procedure attached to the paysplit, defaults to the type set in Preferences, Default unearned type for unallocated paysplits. Customize types in Definitions: PaySplit Unearned Types.

Clinic: The clinic to allocate the income from this paysplit to. Defaults to the clinic assigned to the payment. Set the default clinic in Preferences, Patient payments use.

Provider: The provider to allocate the income from this paysplit to. Click the dropdown to change the provider and select by abbreviation or [...] to select by name. If none the paysplit will be marked as a prepayment. When providers are restricted to clinics, only providers available for the selected clinic are options.

Note: If a procedure or adjustment is attached to a new paysplit, the Clinic and Provider are inherited from the procedure or adjustment and overrides the preference, Patient payments use.

Patient: The patient this paysplit applies to. All family members are listed. To select a patient that is not in the family, check the Is from another family box, then select the patient.

Edit Anyway: This button only shows when opening an existing paysplit that is attached to a procedure and the Paysplit setting in Allocations Setup is set to Rigorous. Click to enable the Clinic, Provider, and Patient fields so they can be edited. The Setup security permission is required.

Note: To ensure income is allocated correctly, the Clinic and Provider should always be the same as the attached production item.

Procedure: Information for the procedure currently attached to the paysplit. See Procedure section below for additional information and how to attach or detach procedures.

Adjustment: Information for the adjustment currently attached to the paysplit. See Adjustment section below for additional information and how to attach or detach adjustments.

Attached to Payment Plan: Check this box to attach this as a Payment to a Payment Plan.
