  • When the security of a user is set up only to access, but not to modify Consultation records, he/she can now create New Contact Lens Order, e.g. for patients with external prescriptions.

  • For practices that are set up with HICAPS Interface, multiple spectacle jobs of the same date will create into the same billing record. In other words, the second job will add to the billing record already created for the first job, as long as

For example, Logins such as REC and LAB is recommended to be set up as "N" so that they can view but cannot modify consultation records. Each optometrist should have his/her own Login, not just a general one called CON. And they should be set up as "Y", such that when modification is done to a consultation record, we know who did the modification (as well as the date of the modification - you can bring up the Entry Log from the Consult option of the top menu).

  • When Re-downloading HIC Online Reports, you now have an option to request a different date for a claim. This is useful for old claims that were sent with the wrong date due to the "Microsoft Time Zone problem":

    In the lastest Microsoft update for Windows XP, the Time Zone of your computer got reset. This may affect the date when Medicare claims are sent via HIC Online, depending on the time of the day they are sent (for claims sent in the morning, the date is sent as the previous day). To fix this Time Zone problem caused by Microsoft:

    • Exit out of all programs

    • Double-click onto the time at the bottom right corner of the screen

    • Click onto Time Zone

    • Change it to a different country (any one), click Apply and then OK

    • Change it back to the correct one, click Apply and then OK
