Understanding the Real Time Benefits Check (RTBC)

Every morning iCoreVerify automatically attempts to retrieve a verification of insurance for all patients scheduled over the next seven calendar days. The Real Time Benefits Check (RTBC) will run with the Patient’s Information, and the Payor/Insurance information that has been entered in your practice management software. In order for the RTBC to run successfully all of this information must be valid and entered in the correct fields.

In the Benefits Check Column, you will see color-coded icons that will provide more information if the Benefits Check was successful or if more information is needed to complete the benefits check.

Quick Tip:
If you need to adjust or correct any missing or incorrect information, you will need to return to your practice managment software to make those corrections.

When you click on the Report Icon, the Benefits Report will be displayed. It will display information on Coverage Type, Coverage Dates, Maximums, Plan Provisions, Frequency Limitations, and Age Limitations.
