Additional Information:


Allowance tables allow an office to enter in set allowed amounts that can be applied to multiple insurance plans. These allowed amounts automatically fill in the bluebook along once attached to an insurance plan. Allowed amounts pulling from an Allowance Table can not be edited directly in an insurance plan, they must be edited through the Allowance Tables information. Allowance tables can be a great convenience for an office.
