Thanks for visiting the site - glad it's helped you.
The CMS-1500 form is the health insurance claim form used for submitting claims for health care service providers. It is a standard form that non-institutional providers use such as your family doctor or specialist. Medicare and Medicaid claims (paper) must be submitted on the official CMS-1500 form with the red ink.
The CMS-1450 (UB-04) form is the claim form to submit claims for institutional providers such as hospitals.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is the government entity which mandates these forms use.
