Procedure Categories

Procedure categories allow you to associate procedures to them and generate certain Payments Reports (e.g., Contract Management Summary, Contract Management Detail) based on specific procedure categories.

Important Note: Procedure categories are not practice specific and are shared across all practices within the Kareo account. Any additions, modifications, or deletions will affect the entire Kareo account and all practices associated with it.
