The organization identified as the main insurer or the insurance company in a client’s implementation of BriteCore is the primary carrier. You can add a primary carrier in the Contacts module.
Filter the Contacts List by Primary Carrier to see if a primary carrier exists in the system. If there isn’t a primary carrier, you can continue to add the primary carrier role. If a primary carrier exists in the system, you can’t add the primary carrier role to another contact.
