Returned checks (NSF)

In order to mark a payment as NSF the following must be true:

  • User has the Mark as NSF privilege

  • The payment is deposited

  • The payment method is Check

  • The payment wasn't previously created as an NSF check

  • The payment isn't a part of any refunds

Checks that bounce after being deposited can be marked “NSF” from the patient’s Sales history screen. To do this, right-click the payment and select Mark as NSF.

Any fees charged by the bank can also be entered in the Record NSF check dialog.

The original check will be applied to the “NSF check” charge (offsetting it exactly). If it was previously applied to an invoice, it will be unapplied, leaving the invoice with an open balance.
