1500 Claim Form Updates
The NUCC (National Uniform Claim Committee) has released the current version of the 1500 Claim Form Manual. We encourage billing staff to take a close look at all the requirements for each field (item) and make sure your billing is aligned with the requirements. Be sure to check with your contracted payers as they may have additional requirements.
One of the major changes involves reporting Qualifiers in Item 19. Additional information can be found HERE.
The NUCC site also provides information related to recent updates on the 1500 to 837 mapping. You can find that information HERE.
