PPS: ERA - Partial Payments

This article applies to the Private Practice Suite


Any line item related to a payment in the ERA file can be marked as being a partial payment. Marking a payment line as partial indicates that the payer’s responsibility has not yet been fully met. As a result, the responsibility for payment on the service line will remain on the current payer and will not move to the next payer or patient.

To apply a partial payment in ERA, click the "Partial" checkbox on the line item associated with the payment.

When the ERA file is applied, this payment will be considered a partial payment from the selected payer. Once the ERA file has been applied, the billing status for the service line will remain on the payer and will not move to the next payer on the list.
