NowMD will support the new 1500 (02-12) health insurance claim form by October 2013. Note that this claim form is no longer called CMS 1500. This new insurance claim form will be accepted for Medicare claims beginning January 6, 2014, will be accepted concurrently with the current CMS 1500 claim form through March 31, 2014, and will be required for Medicare claims beginning April 1, 2014. These dates are subject to change but this is the current plan.
NowMD users will not be required to purchase a software upgrade to gain support for this new claim form. More information including instructions for completing the form and other implementation details are available on the National Uniform Claim Committee web site at www.nucc.org.
