The Daily Payments report will group insurance payments and patient payments separately. Within those groups, payments are further grouped by Payment Type (e.g., check, credit card, etc).
- Date: Payment date.
- Paying Patient: Paid by field from Patient Payments. This may differ from the patient account the payment is applied to. Patient attached to insurance claim for insurance payments. When running report grouped by Check, bulk insurance checks will show only one patient name. An asterisk (*) indicates a bulk check.
- Provider: Provider(s) assigned to the payment.
- Clinic: Only shows when Clinics feature is enabled. Clinic assigned to the payment. If a payment includes payment splits assigned to different clinics, the payment will be split between the clinics (i.e., the full payment total will not be listed on a single line even when Group By Check is selected)
- Check#: Check # field from a patient or insurance payment.
- Amount: Payment split total assigned to the clinic and provider combination. This may differ from the actual payment amount.
