How are Coverage and InsurancePlan connected?

Hello everyone,

I’m interested in getting information about a patient’s insurance benefits. The only resource I found that knows about benefits is InsurancePlan. Since InsurancePlan does not reference a patient, I assume that that the connection is Patient->Coverage->InsurancePlan. I’m I right by assuming that the connection between Coverage and InsurancePlan is via Coverage.class?

Thank you and all the best,



Yes you are correct.

Could you please clarify how to link Coverage with InsurancePlan ? in my opinion the most relevant section is the class but it contains the name of plan not reference to it, is that correct ?



Welcome to the Community.

I agree that class can be used to link to the InsurancePlan.

The class, besides the name also has the value attribute. Take a look:


You can use it to identify the InsurancePlan associated with the coverage.

Yes, but you need to find the InsurancePlan which has class attributes matching the Coverage.class attributes.
