Payment Posting in Kareo
The Payments feature of Kareo enables you to easily enter, apply, and manage payments. Once Payment records are created, you can view the complete log of financial transactions through the Find Payment window.
There are two ways to post payments:
- Manually post payments received in person or by mail from patients (e.g., cash, card payments, electronic checks), insurance companies (e.g., paper provider remittance advices) and other payers. There are essentially two steps to manually posting payments: enter the General payment information first then apply the appropriate payment amount(s) to the corresponding service line(s).
- Enter patient payments then apply the payments.
- Enter insurance or other payments then apply payments from the paper remittance advice or from the other payer.
- Automatically post payments received electronically and reported in an Electronic Remittance Advice (ERA).
