Patient’s Account Number
What’s in the box?
This box contains the number that the provider (clinic) uses to identify the patient.
Where does this info live in Jane?
When you save a new patient profile, Jane automatically assigns a Patient Number to the profile. That number can be changed if needed by heading to the patient’s profile and clicking Edit/Settings.
Is this required?
All patients in your account should have a Patient Number, but it is still considered optional.
What about the EDI file?
The Patient # is not sent in EDI files.
However, something that’s similar to a Patient # that is sent in the EDI is the Claim Submitter’s ID. Each electronic claim submission is assigned a unique Claim Submitter’s ID. This is done automatically, and cannot be changed or altered.
Note: this applies to every electronic submission that you generate for a given claim. So if you create 2 EDIs (1 original submission, 1 resubmission), each transaction will have a unique Claim Submitter’s ID.
The Claim Submitter’s ID is sent in Loop 2300, Segment CLM01
