Payment Splits (paysplits) allow income to be allocated to production, providers, and clinics.

In the Payment window, click Add, or double-click an existing paysplit to edit.

Entry Date: The date the paysplit is entered.

Payment Date: The payment date as entered on the Payment window.

Amount: The paysplit amount.

Unearned Type: Used to designate this split as as Unearned / Prepayment (e.g. prepayments). Defaults to the type set in Account Module Preferences, Default unearned type for unallocated paysplits. Customize types in Definitions: PaySplit Unearned Types.

Clinic: The clinic to assign this income to. Defaults to the clinic assigned to the payment. Set the default clinic in Account Module Preferences, Patient payments use.

Provider: The provider to assign this income to. Click the dropdown to select by abbreviation or [...] to select by name. If none the paysplit will be marked as a prepayment. When providers are restricted to clinics, only providers available for the selected clinic are options.

Note: If a procedure or adjustment is attached to the paysplit, the Clinic and Provider are inherited from the procedure or adjustment and will override the Account Module Preference, Patient payments use.

Patient: The patient this paysplit applies to. All family members are listed. To select a patient that is not in the family, check the Is from another family box, then select the patient.

Edit Anyway: This button only shows when opening an existing paysplit that is attached to a procedure. Click to enable the Clinic, Provider, and Patient fields so they can be edited. The Setup security permission is required.


Attach or detach a procedure from a paysplit.

Click Attach to view a list of completed procedures.

Credit Filter options:

Highlight the procedure to attach to the payment, then click OK. The procedure's payment information (e.g. write-off, insurance paid, estimate, adjustments) will show for information purposes so you can enter the correct paysplit amount to bring the procedure balance to zero.

Click Detach to clear a procedure.


Attach or detach an adjustment from a paysplit.

A summary of the currently attached adjustment is displayed.

Click Attach to select from a list of positive and negative adjustments that are not linked to a procedure. The Attach option is only available if there is no procedure or adjustment currently attached to the payment split. A procedure or adjustment may be attached but not both. To attach both, instead link the adjustment directly to the procedure (see Adjustment) then create a payment split and attach it to the procedure.

Highlight an adjustment to view a summary on the right.
