Many organizations pay their providers based on production. SOS G5 includes calculation of production-based payroll using either of the following approaches:
- Net Fees (total fees charged, less adjustments).
Example: Provider renders a service with a fee of $100, but the fee is reduced by patient discounts and/or insurance contract amounting to $30. The payroll calculation will be based on $70. The amount paid has no effect on the payroll calculation when you use the Net Fees calculation method.
- Payments applied to services rendered by the provider.
Example: Provider renders a service with a fee of $100. At the time of the payroll calculation, a total of $50 has been received and applied to this service. The payroll calculation will be based on $50. Later payments against this service will be included in future payroll calculations. If another $30 is received before the next payroll run, that $30 will be included in the next payroll calculation.Note that only APPLIED payments are included in payroll calculations. If a payment has been received, but has not yet been applied to a specific service, it will NOT be included in the calculation! If it is later applied, it will be included in the next payroll.
Typically, the total of the net fees or the total of the payments will be multiplied by the Payroll Multiplier specified for the Provider Billing Profile on each service entry. If a multiplier is not specified on the Provider Billing Profile, then the default Payroll Multiplier on the main Provider screen is used.
Using the Net Fees method example above, this provider would receive $42 ($70 multiplied by 60%).
Using the Payments method example above, this provider would receive $30 ($50 multiplied by 60%) in the first payroll, and another $18 ($30 multiplied by 60%) in the second payroll.
