Add Insurance Plan to Insurance Company Record (Billing Module Subscribers)

Insurance plan information can be added to an insurance company record in Practice Settings by users with the System Admin and Biller roles. Once entered in Kareo, an insurance plan can then be easily added to a patient's record. In addition, Kareo Billing module subscribers can perform patient eligibility checks and submit claims electronically for insurance plans administered through payers that are enrolled for electronic services on your account. 

Note: Although insurance plan data syncs between Kareo's web application and Desktop Application (PM), it's best practice for billers to add new insurance plans in the Desktop Application (PM). If a plan is added in the web application, it's important to notify your account biller so that the electronic claim settings or paper claim settings can be configured in the Desktop Application (PM).
