Scope of coverage

A product is a discrete package of health insurance coverage benefits that are offered under a particular network type. A given payer’s products typically differ by network type and/or coverage benefits. A plan pairs the health insurance coverage benefits under a product with the particular cost sharing structure offered to a consumer. A given product may comprise multiple plans.

ProductPlan describes a health insurance offering comprised of a list of covered benefits (i.e. the product), costs associated with those benefits (i.e. the plan), and additional information about the offering, such as who it is owned and administered by, a coverage area, contact information, etc.

The ProductPlan does not represent the details for a specific patient, that is the Coverage resource.

RIM scope


Resource appropriateness

A catalog to discover providers that provide specific insurance products is useful for both patients/consumers, and also for providers to verify details.

The information from the catalog will also be able to be utilized in Patient Coverage resources.

Expected implementations

The ONC has indicated that they desire to create a service that uses this capability where they will be distributing aggregated healthcare directory data from a central service to Organizations for local usage (based on a specific data usage agreement)

Content sources

Example Scenarios

  • Centralized Healthcare Directory service
  • Distributed/Federated Provider Directory service
  • Aggregated Directory Service

Resource Relationships

Reference(any) - Our initial requirements are needed against:

  • Organization
  • Location

We do not currently expect other resources to specifically reference ProductPlan
