The Dentrix Ledger contains individual line items for every completed procedure, insurance claim, payment, adjustment, finance charge and late charge made on the account. It can quickly get confusing to look at, particularly when viewing the Ledger for all family members, or looking at the Ledger plus history for the account.
To help make it easier to locate transactions that are related to each other (payments attached to procedures or claims, for example), Dentrix has a Show Transaction Links option, which will highlight line items in the Ledger that correspond with one another.
For example, if you want to see which procedures are included on a particular claim, you can select the claim and use Show Transaction Links to view the procedures and payments attached to that claim.
To view transaction links for an insurance claim:
- In the Ledger, select a patient.
- Select a claim and click View > Show Transaction Links.
Dentrix highlights every transaction entry that is linked to the one you selected. This can help to make sense of a potentially confusing Ledger that is full of entries.
- The Show Transaction Links feature will show any other related transactions (if any). You don’t have to always start with an insurance claim. If you select a payment, and then view the transaction links, procedures and claims will be highlighted.
