Demographics Form Required Fields
Answered

Is there a way to set ALL of the fields (answers) on the Demographic Form to be REQUIRED?  Especially those fields that are populating CMS forms for insurance claim submission, and necessary to file claims.

Also, clients update their demographics information directly through their login portal?--- It would be helpful to have those updates/edits by the client pended while the SP system notifies the administrator (similar to that of a secure message) via email of those changes.  Then suggested updates from client can be acknowledged, reviewed and accepted into the record.

    Hi all, apologies for our delayed response - our Success team reached out to Karen privately to assist, and it looks like we missed responding to this post. There's not currently a way to set the fields on the Demographic Form to be required, but we're always welcoming suggestions for SimplePractice on our Ideas board at simplepractice.uservoice.com.

    It would also be great if there was a place on the demographic form for people to put who they want their Superbills to be made out to. Especially for people who works with kids and teens.

    Yes, PLEASE make a way to set ALL of the fields (answers) on the Demographic Form to be REQUIRED.  This would save so much time so I don't need to contact each client to get necessary information to bill insurance.

    Yes, please allow us to make these fields required. I often don't realize when they're not completed, and then I don't have the info I need to file an insurance claim. At minimum, that information should be required.

    I'm trying to find out if there is a required place for the client to put a social security number. I have found out that "collections" needs a social security number to collect bad debts. Thank you, cheri r.

    Hi everyone,

    As Gillian described, if you have a moment, I definitely encourage you to vote or comment on this Make certain demographic information mandatory idea on our Ideas & Suggestions board. Our product team regularly reviews the ideas on this board as part of our development process.

    Our Demographic Information form does not currently request a client's social security number. However, you can create your own customized intake form requesting this information and requiring that this question be answered. To learn more, feel free to check out this Help Center guide: My Notes and Forms: Creating customized client intake and progress note templates.
