Medicare Health Insurance Card

This section describes how to build your custom OCR API to extract data from the Medicare Health Insurance card using docTI. A Medicare Health Insurance card is your proof of Medicare medical insurance.


You’ll need at least one Health insurance card image or pdf to test your model once created.

Define Your Medical Health Insurance Card Use Case

Using the Medical Health Insurance Card below, we’re going to define the fields we want to extract from it.
Medical Health Insurance Card

  • Card Owner: The full name card owner
  • ID Number: The unique identifier claim number
  • Sex: Gender of the card owner
  • Hospital Effective Date: Start date of the hospital coverage
  • Medical Effective Date: Start date of the medical coverage

That’s it for this example. Feel free to add any other relevant data that fits your requirement.

Deploy your API

Once you have defined the list of fields you want to extract from your Medicare Health Insurance card , head over to the platform and follow these steps:

  1. Log into your Mindee account. You'll land on the My APIs page.
  2. Click the docTI tab.
  3. Click the Create a new API button.

On the Set up your API section, fill in the required information. Give the API a name, a description (optional), and a cover image(optional) and click on Next.

Define Your Model

Click on the different fields to add them to your list

Using the interface, you can manually add each field for the data you are extracting. For this example, here are the different field configurations used:

Once you’re done setting up your data model, click the Create API button at the bottom of the screen.

You are now ready to test your API on the live interface.
