13.3 Resource CoverageEligibilityResponse - Content

Financial Management Work GroupMaturity Level: 2 Trial Use Compartments: Practitioner

This resource provides eligibility and plan details from the processing of an CoverageEligibilityRequest resource.

The CoverageEligibilityResponse resource provides eligibility and plan details from the processing of an CoverageEligibilityRequest resource. It combines key information from a payor as to whether a Coverage is in-force, and optionally the nature of the Policy benefit details as well as the ability for the insurer to indicate whether the insurance provides benefits for requested types of services or requires preauthorization and if so what supporting information may be required.
