C4 report lists patients to either generate a pre-collection CSV or a letter. Once generated, the line sub status changes to “precollection”.
- Filters in the C4 are similar to what you have in the patient statement generation screen(C2 report).
- For every patient for which pre-collection letter or file is generated, the line sub-status will automatically change to ‘Pre-collection’.
- To move a patient out of Pre-collections, clear off the line sub-status of each line of each DOS where the sub status shows ‘Pre Collections’.
How to Move Patients to Pre-Collections
- To move patients to pre-collections for whom statements have been generated, say 3 times in the past, provide the value 3 in the Statement generated ‘From’ and ‘To’ filter.
- Once the patient list gets displayed, either select All the patients by checking the box on the report header column or choose patients from the list by checking them before proceeding with the report generation.
2a. Generate Detailed CSV: This option creates a detailed CSV file on your computer which can then be uploaded to a statements company who will be sending the pre-collection letters on your behalf
2b. Generate Letter: If you want to print and mail yourself, click on Generate Letter.
2c. Generate CSV: For CSV file generation
Note: Once a pre-collection letter is generated for the patient, all the BILL_TO_PT lines of the patients will then have the sub status ‘Pre-Collection’.
