BCBSNC to Adopt the New CMS-1500 Claim Form – Version 08/05
The National Uniform Claim Committee has released a revised version of the 1500 Health Insurance Claim Form (version 08/05) that accommodates the reporting of the national provider identifier (NPI). BCBSNC will adopt the use of this new claim form for professional billing purposes and will follow the implementation dates that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has proposed for Medicare claims. The planned timeline is as follows:
Please review the CMS1500 claim filing instructions and the version 08/05 form for information on how the new claim form should be completed for BCBSNC claim submission. For more information on the new CMS-1500 (version 08/05) claim form visit www.nucc.org.
BCBSNC is also planning to follow the guidelines set by the National Uniform Billing Committee (NUBC) for implementing the UB-04 claim form. More information on the UB-04 implementation will be release soon.
