    • Single Account Finance Charge

      It would be nice to be able to flag a single acct for finance charges so that it is automatically calculated and added to that particular account. This would be much more efficient than adding a charge manually. Than

      • Finance charge option

        When finance charge is applied through the task manager there is an option to select the providers or all providers whose patients you want to apply finance charges. However, there is not as option to change the provider who the finance charge is posted to in the ledger. In our situation, when I run finance charge through the task manager to all accounts at once, the amount is posted to our primary doctor DDS1 and this is inflating his production. We have a fictitious house account, that we have made as a provider that we use to post lab cost…

        • The broken appt tab

          The broken appt tab should have an option to add a fee/code to it for an automatic charge in the ledger.

          • Copay vs. Payment plan

            Regarding patients who have existing payment plans, Easy Dental applies all copays/deductibles to existing payment plans. As a result, The copays for fillings/crowns become applied as payments towards existing payment plan balance. There needs to be a way to distinguish the type of payment so it can apply towards the appropriate balance.

                • Finance charges to back date

                  Need to be able to back date finance charges, for instance I cannot always get to month end on the last day of the month. Very inconvenient to not have this feature!!

                  • Fix PRACTICE ANALYSIS REPORT WHEN ADDING FINANCE CHARGES

                    With the update of G6.6, when applying finance charges, the totals in the Practice Analysis report are not correct. For the past 3 months, the Ending Balance MTD-Current and YTD-Current on the first page are not the same as the Total Receivables in the respective columns on the second page.The difference is exactly the amount of the Finance Charges. Also, the Finance Charges on the first page under those columns is double what the actual finance charges were. We have had to run a utility every month to correct this issue.

                        You can create a fake code in the software, assign it to a zero fee, and post it to the ledger when a patient starts a payment plan – is this what you were looking for?

                      • Billing Statements should be visible in Ledger

                        Billing Statements should be made visible in the patient ledger each time a statement is sent. This would help our office keep better track of how many statements have been sent in order to properly send out overdue/collection letters.

                          • apply finance chgs and create statements based on patient portion only

                            It would be extremely helpful and time saving if I could apply finance charges and create statements for patients based on patient portion only. At a recent seminar for G6, I was told this isn't possible, that it includes insurance pending. I live in Illinois and with the State not paying at this time, I have to go through hundreds of accounts to only send out 20% of those. Also I have to manually go through hundreds of accounts to adjust finance charges. It even applies them to patients with a credit! If I can change this, I would like…

                              • There should be the ability to attach FINANCE CHARGES to the patient portion only.

                                There should be the ability to attach finance charges to the patient portion of the outstanding balance. This seems like it should not be difficult to do since you have the field of expected from insurance and well as the patient portion field.

                                    • Apply a flat fee finance charge for all accts over 60 days. Do not apply interest finance charge - flat fee only.

                                      I am trying to apply a flat fee finance charge of $15 for accts more than 60 days old, but the system only wants to apply a monthly percentage - I don't want a percentage, but rather a flat finance fee.

                                        This is a great suggestion, I will recommend as a workaround – You can set the yearly percentage to .01, and set the “Minimum Finance Charge” to $15, This will make it so a $15 finance charge will be applied to all accounts that fit the criteria (The only way it will be more than $15 is if the patient has more than a $18000 outstanding balance.

                                        Either way, thanks for the suggestion

                                      • Post Finance Charges & Late Fees & Cancellation fee, etc to individual Patient, NOT Guarantor.

                                        Currently, at least in G4, all finance charges, late fees, etc. get posted to the family's "guarantor". But this messes up outstanding balances when a husband has a balance, but the wife gets the finance charge on her ledger. Same happens if say a child was late for an appointment but the dad gets the late fee on his ledger. These fees should be posted to the patients to which they apply, not the guarantor, who sometimes isn't even a patient themselves, but is only on file as the insurance subscriber. This is frustrating for both dental staff and families…

                                        • finance charges to specific provider

                                          default finance charges to a specific provider that isn't necessarily the main provider. i.e. the office owner over their associates
