Number engine version

Claims

Purpose

With the number-engine-version advanced setting, you can select the version of claim numbering to use when generating claim numbers.

  • Version 1 (v1) is the older version of numbering. This version is slightly customizable. You can customize the prefix and suffix of the claim number.
  • Version 2 (v2) is the newer version of numbering. This version is more customizable. You can create unique number sequences based on each policy type. These sequences are added to the system by BriteCore.

Requirements

This setting requires you to input v1 or v2 in the Setting Value box.

Setting default

By default, number-engine-version is set to v1, so the older version of claim numbering is used:

(Prefix) -(YYYY)-(Suffix)

Changing the default

To change the default, navigate to Settings > Advanced and search for number-engine-version. Change the value to v2. The version 2 numbering engine will be enabled.

Adoption considerations

With version 2, the claim number sequence is based on the policy type. The number sequences are custom and added to the system. When version 2 is enabled, the system will check if the claim number sequence should be updated. The claim number sequence should be updated if:

  • The claim number isn’t already a manually created claim number
  • The claim status was changed from Uncommitted or Pending, Unsubmitted.

If the claim number sequence should be updated, then the system will check for the custom sequence, based on the policy type. If a custom sequence isn’t attached to the specific policy type, then the fallback claim sequence will be used (C) – (Current Year) – (Iteration Number).
