The CMS 1500 (formerly HCFA 1500) is the standard paper claim medical form used by non-institutional healthcare providers, such as private practices, to submit a claim for billing Medicare Fee-For-Service (FFS) Contractors for Part B covered services and some Medicaid-covered services. The CMS 1500 is sometimes also suitable for billing various government and some private insurers and is accepted by most health insurance providers. The CMS 1500 has been updated to include National Provider Identifiers (NPIs), or unique numbers required by HIPAA and contains all the basic information needed to submit an accurate claim. Before a claim is submitted, a number of technical protocols and industry standards must be met for insurance claims to be delivered expediently and accurately between medical practice and payer.
