Complete this task to adjust the balance of a service fee line item.
You can apply a positive or negative miscellaneous adjustment to a service fee line item. The adjustment will appear as either MADJN (negative adjustment) or MADJP (positive adjustment) activity code under its parent service fee (SVCFE) line item. The type of adjustment made is determined by the transaction code specified.
If your practice is configured for accounting dates, the Account Date option is required. If your practice is not configured for accounting dates, the Accounting Date option is not available.
Click Adjust Line. The Service Line Adjustment window opens.
Open the Type drop down list and select the type of transaction code for the adjustment to apply: positive or negative.
Enter the amount of the adjustment in the Amount field. The Adjustment Balance value is updated either negatively or positively based on the transaction code selected.
Enter the date to use as the accounting date for this transaction in the Accounting Date field. If your practice is not configured for accounting date, this option is not available.
Click OK to save. The service fee line item is updated to show the appropriate miscellaneous activity code and transaction code of the adjustment that was applied. The unpaid balance of the service fee line item is updated accordingly.
