The Bill Payments section of a bill helps you keep track of payments and EORs received from Claims Administrators.
The Bill Payments section is comprised of Bill Submission Payment and Payment Information. Bill Submission Payment shows the specific payment amount applied to the Bill. Payment Information shows the entire Payment amount issued and the Paper Check/EFT/Virtual Credit Card details.
The Bill Payments section lets you:
