Seventeen Days (and Counting) Until 1500 Claim Form Switchover
Posted on: 3/14/2014

If you use the CMS 1500 claim form - pay attention. As of April 1, an updated version of the claim form must be used, and payers won't accept the old form after that date. This version, known as "02/12," will improve accuracy and accommodate the new norm of daily electronic transactions.

The new form will also have the capability to identify an ICD-9 or ICD-10 claim as the diagnosis code set, and will feature 12 codes instead of the current limit of four.

Luckily, there's help. Start with ISMS's resource on the switch, as well as this useful resource from the National Uniform Claim Committee.
