Kareo PM Recommendation

Leverage two key features of this report:

  • Trending – Generate the report by month to month (choose Columns and pick Month) to compare payment allocations by payment type from month-to-month.
  • Grouping and Subgrouping – Use the "Group by" Rendering Provider filter and "Subgroup by" Service Location filter (as well as month to month trending) to display where monies are being generated by providers on a month-to-month basis. Or, filter by "Group By" Rendering Provider and "Subgroup by" Insurance Plan (with trending by month-to-month) to see insurance payment trending by provider.
