Creating services will allow you to bundle services together or create preset pricing for your services. It will also enable "Instant Quoting" via the HICAPS Go app for your practice, which also makes private health insurance claiming process more efficient when creating payment requests.
Note: Creating services is only enabled for HICAPS and HICAPS item codes.
Setting up services
Click on "Services" on the left-hand side and click the pink "Create a service" button.

Note: By default, services will appear in the HICAPS Go app for patients to see. If you'd like to hide this service from the app, click on "Show advanced options" before saving the service and untick the box labelled "Service is visible to patients".
Once you're happy with the details of your service, click "Create service". The next time you create a payment request, your saved services will appear at top of the "Services" drop down list for easy access.
