How to Invoice No Show Patients


How should Ontario doctors invoice a "no show"

Dear MD Billing:

I am wondering what you might suggest, if one wanted to invoice a patient who has OHIP. For instance, if an OHIP patient does not show up for their appointment and my office had a $50 charge, could I use MDBILLING to create a PRV claim/pdf invoice for this patient?

I suppose I would have to create a new patient with the same name but register them as PRV? Or perhaps could I create a new PRV patient with the name NO SHOW (for instance) and just use that every time I want to create a standard invoice regardless of who the patient is?

Thanks as always,


A, Either one works.. however, for the patient, he/she will prefer having their name on the invoice. If they are planning to use your invoice for tax deductions, they will need to have their name on the invoice.
