State abbreviations are used to enter state information in the Edit Patient Information Window and Add Family windows. The State Abbreviations list contains U.S. states and standard abbreviations by default, but can be edited or added to. Typing the first letter of the state will prompt a suggestion box of all state abbreviations that match the first entered letter.
You may enter any description and abbreviation of your choosing, but we recommend using the standard abbreviations for states, providences, countries, etc. To add or edit state abbreviations, a user must have the Setup security permission.
The Medicaid ID Length column only shows if validation for Medicaid ID has been turned on in Required Fields Setup.
