With the introduction of CCMS the way providers handle the instruction of counsel has changed. Providers are now able to assign Counsel members to a particular case and give them a specific cost limit to work with.
In this module you will learn how to search and assign single and multiple Counsel to a case. You will also learn how to allocate a cost limit to Counsel and how to adjust that cost limit as your case progresses.
