Thank you Chris. I just checked and they are there!


I checked and they are there but the software does not reflect the change.  If you go to System/Fees Maintenance/Install CDT version, it shows 2017.  Also, when you go to List/Insurance Plans/Double click plan and click the red claim filing tab, it also says 2017 without a selection for 2018.  Please advise.
