Search for a claim

In the Claims List screen, you can search for a specific claim with the Search box and narrow search results with the Filter By dropdown list. You can search for a claim in both the Provider Administrator and Agent portals. Once you locate a specific claim, you can view and update the saved claim information depending on your role and access permissions.

Usage consideration

You can filter claims and search results lists by using the Filter By dropdown on the Claims List screen. From the Filter By dropdown, select the claim status you want to filter the search results by. You can use the Filter By dropdown in lieu of entering search criteria, prior to entering search criteria, or after search results are generated. You can only filter the claims list by one status at a time.

The advanced setting historical-claims determines whether or not the claim status Historical, Reporting Only will appear in the Filter By dropdown. If the historical-claims advanced setting is set to True, Historical, Reporting Only will appear. If the historical-claims advanced setting is set to False, it won’t appear.
