What's The Difference Between CMS-1500 and UB-04 or CMS-1450
This site sure has helped me out alot to answering my questions. I am just getting into medical billing and coding, this is a life saver. Just wanted to say "THANK YOU".
Thanks for visiting the site - glad it's helped you.
The CMS-1500 form
is the health insurance claim form used for submitting physician and professional claims providers.
The CMS-1450 (UB-04) form is the claim form for facilities such as hospitals or outpatient facilities.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is the government entity which mandates use of these forms.
