OHIP Billing Tip #30 - Time Units, Surgical/Anesthesia


How to simplify time unit calculation for surgical and anesthesia specialties

To set up claims so the user can just enter the time (ie. start time 11:30, end time 14:30) instead of trying to figure out the units, go to Settings (under username) -> Select "My Preferences" on the left menu.


Once there scroll down to “SPECIFIC TO MEDICAL DISCIPLINES” -> Select “Enable Time Unit Quantity (Anesthesia/Surgical)” -> Save.


When creating a new claim the user will now have the ability to enter the start and end times of the procedure to the service and the quantity will populate for them.
