  1. Check patient eligibility for active coverage for the claim's date of service.
    Note: The information that displays on Check Patient Eligibility window is based on the window it was opened from (e.g., Find Patient, Edit Patient, Insurance Policy).
    • If patient eligibility check is not available or does not display active coverage, verify the patient's eligibility directly with the payer and notate the following information.
      • Phone number for the payer
      • Reference number for the call
      • Name of the payer representative

If all patient demographics and eligibility are confirmed by the payer, contact Customer Care for further assistance.
Note: Tebra's clearinghouse partners require a copy of the patient's insurance card (front and back) in order to research eligibility rejections. Have a copy available in the Patient record or ready to be provided to Customer Care via another secure method.
