Estimated payment month
The Transaction history page has a table showing your estimated payments for the next few months. This information makes reconciliations and payment projections easier.
You can also export this information as Transaction history and Summary report.

- Is calculated from program configuration rules and timelines and is processed in the next/upcoming payment cycle.

The following table is an example of an estimated payment month:
Estimated payments versus actual payments

- Adjustments: The actual amount varies depending on adjustments that occurred or were submitted.
- Rules change: A change in rules may result in recalculation of the actual amount paid.
- Payable: If there's a payment failure, the actual amount could be different.

Payment eligibility rules include but aren't limited to:
