Insurance Tab

 

Patients can have one or more insurance coverage records or none at all. If you want to be able to generate insurance claims, you must enter the insurance information. This is true even if you will be printing plain paper claims for your patients to submit themselves.

 

Above the list of insurance you can see the effective and termination date of the highlighted insurance. They are placed here rather than on the list itself because of the space limitation of the fixed width list. Also above the list is a Show Inactives check box. If this box is not checked, the list will show only the patient's currently active insurance. When this box is checked, all of the insurance records, including insurance that has expired (i.e. the termination date is in the past) or that has not yet gone into effect (the effective date is in the future) will also be included on the list.

 

Five buttons appear at the bottom of the list. Clicking the Claims button will open a list of insurance claims generated for this patient. The other buttons let you add, change, delete, and view the patient's insurance information.
