Features requires:

  • More generic management of the benefit package, a benefit package cannot only use the Health insurance coverage models, other model such as one time payment or right must be supported (both can be linked, a pension coverage can lead to a pension benefit ) each model should be a set of modules: ability to add “rights“ to an insuree that will ensure that he will get benefits/payment for a given period of time (US 1,3,6)

  • So the claiming can be reviewed by the right team depending on the type of claim (also some process will require multiple approvals which are not yet supported) so additional steps can be added in the claim to ensure that all the required parties did their parts (US 3, 4, 7)

  • Form attached to the claim to collect the additional information required to handle the case

  • Complex claim services that can have a variable value based on other parameters (from imisdb or Form, i.e. average contribution for the last 6 months)

  • Bundle several claim Items and services (12) that can be applied to a claim and then amount of Items/services corrected via pop up (i.e. result not mixed with other items and services) (12)

  • (very low priority) Reinsurance funding and contribution (9)

  • Real Audit claim process (8)

  • Grievance to manage grievance from insuree

  • The insuree object must become more generic : Person Model

  • the HF models must have a module on their own so Geo location could be deployed stand alone

  • managing beneficiary ('potential') listing and its curation

On the modeling parts:

  • FHIR Questionnaire could be attached based on the type of claims
