The Doctor Summary Report can be used to calculate associate doctors salaries. This report is available when printing the “Transactions (Daily)” or “Year to Date” reports. Year to date reports can be printed for any date range (ie: weekly, monthly, quarterly, etc).
This column displays the combined total of patient and insurance payments that were posted (within the date range selected) and applied to services that the doctor performed.
Total Paid plus either DrPrePayCr — or — PatPrePay should be used to determine how much an associate should be paid
DrPrePayCr (doctor pre-payment credit):
This column displays the portion of a patient’s credit balance that was applied to a service that the doctor performed.
The credit that was applied may have come from a patient’s pre-payment, money returned to the patient after insurance paid for the service, etc.
If your office pays associates only for services they performed, then this amount (DrPrePayCr) should be added to the Total Paid amount.
PatPrePay (patient pre-payment):
This column displays money collected in advance that was not applied to any service yet.
The patient would have a credit balance which will eventually get applied to future services.
Normally, money collected in advance belongs to the office. The doctor would only receive credit for it once it is actually applied to a service the doctor performed. That is when it would show up in the DrPrePayCr column.
However, if your associates see their own patients and your office pays associates for patient pre-payments (that were never applied to any services yet), then the PatPrePay amount should be added to the Total Paid amount (described above).
