Medicare New Claim Form Date Extension
Mar 22, 2007

Email this article

Just as a reminder,  Medicare has postponed the date on which you must use the new health insurance claim form to June 1, 2007. As of that date all paper claims (including rebills) must use the new claim form.

The date on which you must start using your NPI number is still May 23, so start using the new claim forms when you are ready and make sure your clearing house has the NPI numbers.  This applies to chiropractic as well as other health care professions.

If you’re wondering, Medicare delayed the implementation because the government printing office sent out some of the new claim forms that were wrong. You can tell if you have ordered the wrong forms by looking at the upper right hand corner of the claim form. If the red arrow above the word “CARRIER” is touching or close to touching the top edge of the paper, it is the misprinted form.

Email me if you have any questions.

Thanks, Dave
