Either at the time of appointment or at the time of patient visit the practice(Check in), patient insurance information has to be collected. If it is existing patient, then we need to verify the existing patient insurance information which is already in the file(or computer system).

The following information has to collect from the patient

1. Insurance Company Name

2. Policy No (Unique number to identify the patient within the insurance system)

3. Policy Group No (Identifies in which plan the patient enrolled with the insurance company)

4. Effective Date (From which date, benefits or covered services are allowed)

5. Relationship to the Patient(Patient may have the insurance on his name, or he/she may be covered by one of the family member)

6. Insured details such as first name, last name, etc if the patient is not the same as insurer.
