Third Party Maintenance allows pharmacies to create and edit third party groups such as the Traffic

Accident Commission (T.A.C) and Workers Compensation (W.C.). Customers under the care of these groups may then be linked to the third party to enable relevant prescriptions and items to be charged to the third party.

Warning 
Transactions for customers that have both a personal account and a third party account are shown under one account until the end of the month. During the end of month process the transactions are split into two separate accounts. It is important that due care is taken to ensure items are charged to the correct account.
