Reminder: Medicare filing requirements and how to submit and code claims
The 837I (Institutional) is the standard format used by institutional providers to transmit health care claims electronically. The Form CMS-1450, also known as the UB-04, is the standard claim form to bill Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) when a paper claim is allowed. In addition to billing Medicare, the 837I and Form CMS-1450 may be suitable for billing various government and some private insurers.
CMS published an informational document explaining when Medicare will accept a hard copy claim form, filing requirements, and how to submit and code claims. This resource can be downloaded here and used as a reminder for your billing staff.
