An OEC is an Online Eligibility Claim, ostensibly it is a quote that is a precursor to an IMC. 

You must have gone through all of the relevant setup, verification and admission before you can do an OEC.

1.     Click OEC Quote

2.     Fill in the services as necessary. Be aware that you can only bill services with the asterisk modifier (in-            hospital).

3.     After submitting an OEC, the system will automatically check the status of and produce a report on the             OEC for you to give to the patient.

4.     An OEC can later be converted in to an IMC by highlighting it and pressing IMC Invoice, 

        (you will be asked if you want to convert this OEC in to an IMC). This saves time but you must ensure               that all of the details are still correct in the invoicing screen before pressing OK.
