Charge Capture

Charge capture is the process of entering services rendered into a billing system so the services can be billed to an insurance company or payer or to an individual for payment.  Charge capture can be accomplished by having the care provider:

  • Mark a form (called an encounter form, superbill, fee ticket or routing slip) and having a staff member enter the charges
  • Mark a bubble form and scan the charges into the system
  • Enter the charges directly into the billing system
  • Have an EMR/EHR product translate/abstract the service dictation or documentation into charges
  • Enter the charges through a handheld charge capture system with a PDA or smartphone which then electronically post to the billing system
