Agreed Care Credit should be a separate payment method. We used to post them as Credit Card payments but now we use e-payments. Credit Card is no longer an option because it prompts e-payments to run, even when using the Patient Payment code. So now we choose Electronic Deposit and enter CareCredit in the comment box, but it would be better if it was a separate choice in the drop down list.
We have had a Care Credit code for years. We are also integrated with Care Credit, so when we enter the payment code (13), Care Credit pops up. It will look up card numbers, give you the plans to choose from and print out the Care Credit receipt for the patient to sign. It is awesome. We are on v188.8.131.52.
What she is referencing is actually her Softdent software which is another one of our Carestream products for our dental clients but mimicking that functionality is what I was wanting to look into for WinOMSCS.
jeffrey.urkevich The Softdent model of the CareCredit payment functionality would be a great starting point to build off of for WinOMSCS in this situation.
I do not know if this will help, but we have care credit integrated with the software and when posting a transaction, we use code 13, This will bring up where you enter the care credit amount and payment options . Once you complete all the information you are able to print your receipts . At the end of day when we run a deposit slip, we will receive a separate sheet showing all our care credit deposits for the day. We are using version 16.2.4. We are very pleased how this has been working.
That would be great if CareCredit payment can be integrated in WINOMS. From what I understand, effective 10/1/17, CareCredit will require that all transactions be processed via their website. Can this be linked somehow to WINOMS?
Just realized someone asked how we changed our Money Order payment type to CareCredit. If memory serves me right it was through "Daysheet Setup" . Keep in mind that renaming any type of payment, discount, write-off or adjustment only changes the name of that category It does NOT change the dollar amounts already recorded under that category. We changed ours from Money Order to CareCredit on January 1st so we can run reports from that day forward knowing it's CareCredit dollars and a report for anything prior to Jan 1st was money order dollars.
This is why being able to add an additional payment type instead of changing the name of one would be so much better. Especially if your looking at adding Bitcoin, PayPal or any other form of electronic payment (Apple, Samsung, or Google Wallet).
We are already integrated with CareCredit, but the payment types would need to be enhanced in order to support what you are looking for.
