Selecting the insurer (Canada only)

If the sale will be paid for by an insurer for which special pricing applies, select the insurer within the Products & services panel. Correct pricing is displayed and used for the order. If the patient is covered by an insurer, who normally pays the full amount of all purchases, the insurer will be selected by default.

    Items with a benefit code and/or special pricing defined for the selected insurer are highlighted with a check mark. Insurer-specific services are highlighted with a star and are only visible when the insurer is selected. See: Setting up insurer coverage for more information.

    If the insurer does not appear in the drop-down menu, enter the policy information in the patient's Insurers tab before continuing with the sale.
