⚠️The creation of at least one company is required in order to set up on the invoice a logo and custom text. If no company is set up, only the name of your connection institution and its contact information will appear on the invoice. 

Add a company

3. Add a custom text on the invoice (optional). This text is displayed at the bottom of the invoice. To display the text in more than one language, the translations must be added after the main text in this field.

 

This field can be used, among other things, to enter tax numbers, as well as the standardized text linked to the RAMQ: : "The patient who believes that the amounts billed after December 6th, 2015 are for services insured under the Health Insurance Act can, within five years of payment, make a written claim for reimbursement to the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec. When it is of the opinion that the amounts billed are not allowed, the Régie reimburses the patient and recovers the same amount from the professional or third party who billed for the services. "
