Hi Supporters, 

As we know, each patient insurance will have a insurance member id. So, Could you please let me know which Cerner's coverage field we should use to fill the member id.

I'm wondering between coverage.subscriberid, the value of coverage class type = plan, coverage.dependent. Please bright my mind! It's really an our urgen item.

Thanks!

Hi Cerner team,
Could you weight in and respond on the concern above?
There are 3 fields ( coverage.subscriberid, the value of coverage class type = plan, and  coverage.dependent) that we think that may map to member id. 
Which coverage field in Cerner that should map to member id? I’m leaning towards coverage.subscriberid but need your confirmation.

Hello,

For Private Coverage, The Coverage.SubscriberId field is the subscriber's member number. The Coverage.dependent field is the patient's member number. For Public coverages, we do not have a carrier org ref or member ids.

Thanks,
Fenil
