About Capitated Accounts

Under a capitated insurance contract, the provider is paid a pre-established amount that is not contingent upon the type of procedures performed; rather the procedure is performed on a patient who is insured under a capitated insurance plan. Kareo PM supports billing for providers who perform procedures under capitated insurance contracts.

To apply a payment or a portion of a payment to a capitated account, you must first create a capitated account if one has not already been set up. Once the account is created or already exists in the database, you then select the payment that is associated with the account and apply payment.

For more information on capitated accounts, see the following sections:
