CMS 1500

          CMS 1500 forms are red and white claim forms used by medical professionals to submit insurance claims for payments when they are submitted on paper.  Most health insurance claims are filed today electronically, but there is still a need to actually fill out the CMS paper claim form and mail them to the insurance carrier.  There are a few smaller insurance carriers not yet ready to receive claims electronically so they still use the 1500 or HCFA forms.  And not all clearing houses which process the electronic claims handle all insurance carriers leaving the need to submit some paper claim forms. 

          When a patient has two health insurance policies and one is primary and one is secondary it is sometimes necessary to file the secondary claim on paper as well.  Ditto for tertiary claims.

          CMS forms are widely available for purchase and usually offered in boxes of 2500 forms.  They are still available in duplicate and track feed but are more common in single sheets.  The forms also called HCFA forms must be completed accurately and completely for payment by the insurance carriers.  How to Complete a CMS1500 ebook takes you step by step thru the form explaining how to complete each box.
          The CMS forms were revised in August 2006.  The revised form accommodates the reporting of the NPI number or the National Provider Identifier.  The new form was officially accepted starting January 1, 2007 and it's use mandated by April 2, 2007.   

          The major difference between old and the revised CMS 1500 form is the split provider identifier field which allows for the reporting of both NPI number and the corresponding Legacy number on them.  The "type of service" box was eliminated and deemed no longer required information.  



Some areas of the CMS1500 are shaded so that they start to look more like the UB92 forms which also changed.  Here's more information on the new UB04 claim forms. 

  Now available   - Our NEW  "How To Complete a CMS (HCFA 1500) Completely and Correctly - Line By Line, Box By Box" ebook is now available.  This 40 page ebook explains in terms a medical biller will understand exactly what information is required and where to put it on the new CMS 1500 forms with specific details.  Here's more information and an excerpt from "How To Complete a CMS (HCFA 1500) Completely and Correctly - Line By Line, Box By Box".  Avoid unnecessary denials on your medical insurance claims by completing the form correctly the first time.  You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to read the report.  You can download the newest version here at Acrobat Reader.
