Coverage _search

post/Coverage/_search
Page View

This resource describes a patient’s insurance plan information, which you may typically find on the patient’s insurance card. You can also use this resource to register for Selfpay (i.e., when an entity other than the insurance or guarantor pays for healthcare costs, like worker’s compensation). Keep in mind that a Coverage resource contains details for your review, not approval or eligibility.

You can review or retrieve coverage information.

_search

Query for details about a patient’s insurance plan.

This is a flexible option with query parameters to refine your search. The response returns a bundle of resources, known as a searchset bundle type. Learn about bundles and bundle types in our FHIR® glossary.
