Before I do, permit me to run the following past the group.

Is it desirable that the GNUmed billing table carry sufficient information to support printing an invoice directly from GNUmed?

A use case could be made for this, if one would combine two considerations:

1. raw billings would still need to be approved before being issued, but this is similar to the way labs need to be acknowledged, and so the code base from the test results widget might allow a function like "approve all" or "approve selected" among the billable items of the patient currently being viewed. Any invoicing that would be done directly from inside GNUmed has no ambition at present to do more than manual billable item editing and invoice printing for one in- focus patient at a time

2. printing could then be done through a method similar to how basic medications could be printed

Depending if the answer to the above is "yes" then some fields will be needed in the bill_items table to supplement the minimal fields which could otherwise hold additional required information inside a field column "data_formatted" for transfer to an external billing system.
