You cannot change the vendor if the authorization was a manual entry. Either (1) delete the authorization from the system or (2) change the amount of units to "0" so it will total out, then create a new authorization using the correct information.

- Click "authorizations"

- Select the consumer from the dropdown list of names.

- Choose "Billing Units Management" at the top of the screen.

(1) Click the "x" icon to delete the entry.

or

(2) Click the blue arrow to the left of the incorrect authorization. Enter - (minus) the number of available units in "modify". Enter a reason for making the change. Confirm that remaining units is now 0. Create a new authorization using the correct information.

available authorizations

What to do if you are sure that your consumer has an authorization in the system but "No Authorizations Available" appears in red beside that person's name in the list of consumers.

This message is an indication that the consumer doesn't have a CURRENT authorization in the system, so the end date has probably passed. To verify, go to "authorizations" from the main screen. Select the consumer from the dropdown list of names. Click "Billing Units Management" and select the blue arrow to the left of the authorization for details. If the end date has passed but units were in fact available prior to that end date, the counselor can process a note against the authorization IF the date of service falls before that end date.
