Reminder: Old CMS-1500 (08/05) Claim Form No Longer Accepted

Although most billing in SNFs is done on a UB-04, this is a good reminder that the CMS-1500 claim form has been updated to a newer version…

Effective 04/01/2014, Medicare stopped accepting paper claims on the old CMS 1500 claim form with a date of 08-05 in the lower right hand corner. Novitas continues to receive and return these old forms! This delays your claim payment! The new form you should use has a date of 02-12 in the lower right hand corner.
