After you create an allowance table, you can attach it to an insurance plan. All bluebook entries created for the insurance plan are updated when the allowance table is updated.

After an insurance plan is associated with an allowance table, you can no longer update the entries information from the Bluebook entries for window. These entries must be updated from the allowance table.

1. In the Insurance Plan window, click Coverage. The tab is the active window.

2. Select the allowance table from the Allowance Table drop-down list. The table is associated and bluebook entries are created.

3. Click OK.
