The process takes anywhere from 2-8 weeks.

An exciting add-on service is available to ChiroPulse365 subscribers which lets your office automatically input payments quickly into ledger via Electronic Payment 835 ERA files. This is a huge time-saver for your office staff! You can obtain the Electronic Payment 835 ERA (Electronic Remittance Advice) file from your clearinghouse/carrier and now quickly import hundreds (or thousands!) of line-item “payment” entries into the Ledger of many patients very quickly. This is not only much faster than manual entry of this payment data but the input is 100% accurate with no typos or mistakes.
The Electronic Payments add-on is available in “pre-release” to select users at NO COST! To gain early access please use the form at the bottom of this page. Upon full-release of the “Electronic Payments Add-on” all ChiroPulse365 subscribers will be given free unlimited-use of this add-on for a number of days. We know demand is high for this feature but we want to get it 100% right so during the pre-release time we’ll be sorting out a few more regional clearinghouses & carriers.
