FHIR Resource Development Project Insight ID


Scope of coverage

The ExplanationOfBenefit resource combines key information from a Claim, a ClaimResponse and optional Account information to inform a patient of the goods and services rendered by a provider and the settlement made under the patients coverage in respect of that Claim.

RIM scope


Resource appropriateness

This is the logical combination of the Claim, Claim Response and some Coverage accounting information in respect of a single payor prepared for consumption by the subscriber and/or patient. It is not simply a series of pointers to referred-to content models, is a physical subset scoped to the adjudication by a single payor which details the services rendered, the amounts to be settled and to whom, and the coverage used and/or remaining.

Expected implementations

This is a key resource expected by most Healthcare billing implementations where Health care products and services are provided.

Content sources

Existing normative V3 and V2 specifications, Canadian Specifications, X12

Example Scenarios

Resource Relationships
