Canada: Procedure Code Time Units
For Canadian procedures that use scaling units, a time unit value can be entered. All procedure codes default to 1 time unit unless specified as different in their description, but you can also add or edit as needed. You can also view an insurance plan's total, used, and remaining time units by benefit category in the Treatment Plan or Account module.
Note: When you update to version 15.4 or greater, new time unit values will update for procedure codes that already exist. We recommend updating CDA codes first, then updating Open Dental.
For time units to be calculated correctly, the following needs to occur:
Enter a Procedure's Time Units
View Remaining Time Units
In the Treatment Plan module, click Ins Rem above the remaining insurance information.
In the Account module, click the Ins Rem box in the Aging area.
A new window will open showing the total, used, and remaining time units for each procedure code category that has a benefit.
