Before you begin diagnostic billing, you must record your LSPN.
Please see the Provider Numbers and Sites of Service article for information on doing so.
There are no other special considerations when billing diagnostic item numbers - simply add them to an invoice as normal.
When you add a diagnostic item to an invoice, the Request Details pop-up window will open.
- Search for the requesting practitioner here and select their name to add them.
- If you need to add a requesting practitioner, you can do so within the Address Book.
- Please see the Address Book article for more information on adding a practitioner to the Address Book.
- Enter the request date.
- If applicable, tick the Substituted service checkbox.
- Select Save.
If the diagnostic service was provided without a request, then you can instead enter the Reason for no request.
Simply select the relevant option:
- Self deemed,
- Emergency, or
and press Save to continue.
Once you have added the request details, you will see the Request details tip appear underneath the item.
You can hover your mouse over the tip to view more information.
Clicking the Request details tip will re-open the request details window, where you can make any changes, if necessary.
Please note: the request details set for the first diagnostic item will be applied to all subsequent diagnostic items.
However, making changes to one diagnostic item's request, it will not update the request details of other items.
Gentu will automatically apply the relevant Diagnostic Item Multiple Service Rule (DIMSR) to diagnostic items as you add them to the invoice.
Please see the Multiple Procedure Rules article for more information.
