Fully updated with the 2012 revisions, the new CMS-1500 is 100% compliant and printed to exact specifications. As a result, our CMS-1500 forms offer a distinct advantage: Anti-Rejection Protection™*. Forms are fully compliant and rejection-proof, so you get paid quicker!
The final transition timeline for implementation of the revised CMS-1500 claim form is as follows:
• January 6, 2014: Private insurance carriers and Medicare begin receiving and processing paper claims on the revised CMS-1500 claim form (02/12)
• January 6 – March 31, 2014: Dual-use period during which private insurance carriers and Medicare continue to receive and process paper claims submitted on either version of the form
• April 1, 2014: The current claim form (08/05) is discontinued; all private insurance carriers and Medicare receives and processes paper claims submitted only on the revised CMS-1500 claim form (02/12)
It’s important to note, too, that the transition will be gradual, and testing will be ongoing through the transition period ending on March 31, 2014.
