Key Enhancements

Billing

  • Excluding Items from Total and Material Allowances. You can now use the new Not Covered with Total/Material Allowance method to exclude selected items or item groups in insurance plans from Material Allowance and Total Allowance special option calculations. The new method can be applied to eyeglass lens and lens option item types only. You can add items to which the new method is applied to an order, but no part of the total or material allowance in a plan can be applied to the items.
  • Enhancing Performance of Searching for Claims by Patient Name. In Billing, searching for claims by patient name now takes only a few seconds. Previously, it could take up to 20 seconds.

POS

  • Complying with a New FTC Regulation for Contact Lenses. As of October 17, 2020, the FTC requires patients to receive and sign a copy of all contact lens prescriptions. You may also ask the patient to sign a copy for your records. To facilitate compliance with the rule, the following statement now appears at the bottom of the AcuityLogic Patient Contact Lens Prescription Information form: "My eye care professional provided me with a copy of my contact lens prescription at the completion of my contact lens fitting." The statement includes lines for the patient's signature and the date.

Key Fixed Issues

BackOffice

  • The process of creating an appointment in the Calendar view of the Scheduler is now faster.

Billing

  • You can now cancel a claim line item that does not have a procedure code and then set the claim to Ready to Bill Patient or Ready to Bill Carrier. Previously, the following message appeared when you tried to change the claim's status after canceling the line item: "The claim is missing a procedure code and its claim status has not been changed."

POS

  • In the Scheduler, the Appointment Not Invoiced (red dollar sign) icon is no longer displayed after an appointment is invoiced. Previously, the icon was sometimes still displayed in the Week view next to Friday and Saturday appointments after they were invoiced.
  • The process of creating an appointment in the Calendar view of the Scheduler is now faster.
