It is important to complete
a CMS 1500 or HCFA 1500 form correctly to expect to get paid by the
insurance carriers for services performed by medical providers.
Errors on the form can cause insurance companies to deny the claims.
Not only does the doctor not get paid for his or her services, but
sometimes the patient is incorrectly billed for a service the insurance
company should have paid. The patient may take their frustrations
out on the office staff or change doctors.
You need to know all the fields on the CMS 1500 form and what information goes in each field. The information must be complete, correct, and in the format that the insurance companies require. CPT codes and ICD9 codes are used to convey the disease, injury, and diagnosis so it is important to be familiar with these codes.
When considering CMS 1500 instructions, it is also necessary to look at regulations of individual insurance companies. Some insurance companies require modifiers for particular procedures. Some insurance companies will deny the same claim because it has that modifier.
CMS 1500 forms can be filled out on a computer through a practice management software, typewritten, or even handwritten although many insurance companies will deny handwritten claims. CMS 1500 forms can even be sent electronically without being printed at all. Whether they are printed, typed, handwritten or sent electronically, each box and line must be entered with the information the insurance company requires.
Each medical specialty such as cardiology, vision, pediatrics and radiology will also have it's differences in completing the forms. It is important for the person completing the forms to know the necessary information in their field to file the forms correctly so they will be paid.
