What it is:
Box 29 is used to indicate the payment received from the patient or other payers. Enter total amount the patient and/or other payers paid on the covered services only. Enter the number right justified in the dollar area of the field. Do not use commas when reporting dollar amounts. Negative dollar amounts are not allowed. Dollar signs should not be entered. Enter 00 in the cents area if the amount is a whole number.
Therabill will use the total amount of any payments (insurance or client) made to services listed in the Billing & Coding section of the Edit Session dialog to populate box 29. This will normally show the amount of a client co-pay payment, and/or previous insurance payments when submitting to secondary insurance.
From anywhere in Therabill where you see the dollar sign to Enter Payment for a session, click the dollar sign to bring up the New Payment/Adjustment page. In the Payment History section in the lower left, you can see any existing payments for that session.
