Step 6: Configuring benefits for your product template
You can modify the coverage for a benefit or grouper that was previously included as part of a benefit set for a specific network. For example, you can add the values for the benefit-specific coverage such as copayment or coinsurance and include deductible or out-of-pocket amounts. In addition, you can configure the order of cost shares that is used in claim adjudication. You can assign cost shares for specific conditions or assign limits to a benefit. For example, you can limit physical therapy sessions to 30 visits per year.
For this tutorial, you are only going to add a visit limit for physical therapy sessions.
