If a patient has primary and secondary insurance plans attached to his or her record, after a primary claim has been paid, a secondary claim is created automatically. However, if you add a secondary insurance plan to the patient's record after a primary claim has been paid, you must manually create the secondary claim.
Note: This is also true for a tertiary plan that is attached to a patient's record after a secondary claim has been paid.
