Appointment level billing changes

If you need to make billing changes to a client's appointment after the appointment took place, this guide can show you how to do that. We'll cover how to:

Note: In SimplePractice, an appointment's billing type can either be Self-Pay or Insurance, depending on how the appointment is paid. If an appointment is set to Self-Pay, the client will be responsible for the full appointment fee. If the appointment is set to Insurance, then client will be responsible for a portion of the appointment fee (such as their copay amount), and their insurance payer will be responsible for the remainder of the fee.


Change the billing type (Self-Pay or Insurance) for individual appointments

  • Navigate to the client's Billing page and delete any invoices and superbills associated with the appointment you want to edit 
  • Hover your cursor over the appointment and click the Edit button that appears

Note: If you don’t see the Edit button appear, it's because the appointment is attached to a superbill. Make sure to delete the superbill first. 

  • Select the billing type you want to change the appointment to (Self-Pay or Insurance)
  • Click Save
