  • Within the Admin section, Auth Reps and Admins can now view only Active Users. Previously, Active and Suspended users were combined.

Control

  • Control now supports searching for claims by Payer Type. The supported tabs are Claim Tracking, Claim Control, Claim Follow Up, and Patient AR Control.
