Payers can be sorted into revenue groups so that the Revenue Group Report can calculate and display each revenue group's contribution to the total revenue for a specified time period.
Revenue Group Report
User access to reports is controlled through Setup > User administration > Users > (select the user of interest) > Edit reports.
The Revenue Group Report, available at Tools > Reports, shows sales, returns, write-offs, and credits, grouped by revenue groups within the specified time period.
Managing revenue groups
Access to the Revenue groups module in the Setup menu is controlled through the Maintain revenue groupsuser privilege.
Existing revenue groups are listed at Setup > Revenue groups.
Creating a new revenue group
To create a new revenue group, click the CREATE NEW button at the bottom of the screen. The Create revenue group dialog will appear; in it, enter the new revenue group's name, and optionally set it to be the default revenue group for new insurers. Then click CREATE.
Editing an existing revenue group
To edit an existing revenue group, select it and click EDIT DETAILS. The Edit revenue group dialog will appear; in it, the revenue group's name, active status, and insurer default status can all be changed. Click UPDATE to save any edits.
Linking revenue groups to insurers
Access to the Insurers module in the Setup menu is controlled through the Maintain insurersuser privilege.
To link a revenue group to an insurer, edit that insurer's details and set the correct revenue group using the Revenue group drop-down menu in the Insurer details dialog.
For US systems, existing insurers' revenue groups are set as follows: Epic, Hear.com, TruHearing, and YHN are assigned to the Managed care revenue group; insurers whose insurance plans are set to Medicare or Medicaid are assigned to the Medicare/Medicaid revenue group; all other insurers will have no revenue group set.
For non-US systems, existing insurers will not have a revenue group set.
If, at Setup > Revenue groups, a default insurer revenue group is set, that revenue group will be the default option in the Revenue group drop-down menu in the Create insurer dialog.
Private pay: the revenue group for patients
Patients (and their primary contacts), in their capacity as payers, belong to the hidden revenue group called Private pay.
