Understanding How the Claim Is Populated

Claims Management autopopulates the CMS 1500 form with information you’ve recorded throughout the Eyefinity Practice Management system. You can review and modify most of the information on the CMS 1500 form through the Edit Claim window.

The table below describes which fields Claims Management uses to autopopulate the CMS 1500 form, and indicates which field on the Edit Claim window corresponds to each CMS 1500 box.

Some information that Eyefinity Practice Management imports into the CMS 1500 form may depend on whether insurance plan information overrides carrier information. In situations in which data can be extracted from different fields in Eyefinity Practice Management, all fields are listed. Contact Eyefinity Practice Management Customer Care for assistance with setting up custom attributes and overrides.
