New in this Medisoft Version 14

There are many new features in this medical billing software version to help you to manage your practice. Some of the highlights include:

Version 14 adds UB-04 claims support. If you need to process these types of claims, you can easily enable UB-04 specific fields in the application on the Program Options, Data Entry tab.  Version 14 also provides UB-04 claim processing. Once you have entered data in the UB-04 fields for a patient, you can enter transactions and then create and print UB-04 claims.
