PracticeSuite will read and process payment information from the latest DFT (Charge message) from Practice Fusion. 

1.4 Patient Insurance Update Not Allowed After Billing 

Patient insurance updates sent over the interface will not be allowed if claims have already been generated for this insurance. In these cases, new insurance will be created with the provided details. This change is not applicable for accounts that already have customizations done in the insurance API.


Part – 2 Bug Fixes

Outbound Insurance company information from PracticeSuite failed to get updated in Elation. This is now corrected.
