Auto-populating additional fields on claim forms

When creating a claim form, you may want to auto-populate more fields than just the standard demographic, insurance, appointment, and provider information.

  • Box 16. DATES PATIENT UNABLE TO WORK IN CURRENT OCCUPATION
  • Box 17, 17a, 17b. NAME OF REFERRING PROVIDER OR OTHER SOURCE
  • Box 18. HOSPITALIZATION DATES RELATED TO CURRENT SERVICES
  • Box 20. OUTSIDE LAB and LAB CHARGES
  • Box 23. PRIOR AUTHORIZATION NUMBER
  • Box 26. PATIENT'S ACCOUNT NUMBER
  • Box 27. ACCEPT ASSIGNMENT?
