Popular Procedure CodesThe list of procedure codes that will appear when you click into the procedure field in the billing window for a visit note is stored in Billing Settings. Each practice can freely add or remove codes from the list, and the order of the codes as they appear in this list is how they will appear when one first clicks into the procedure field in the billing window.
