The claim form itself is split into three sections
- Fields 1-13 – Patient information
- Fields 14-24 – Procedural and diagnostic information related to services provided
- Fields 25-33 – Servicing and billing provider information.
To reinforce these concepts, we will present the information required to correctly complete the claim form based on the section requirements. Practice questions will follow each section. The last section is a case study in which you will create a clean 1500 claim based on the information given.
In an office setting, all information required to complete the CMS form is found in:
- Section 1: The patient’s registration form.
- Section 2: The superbill and verified information in the medical chart.
- Section 3: The provider and billing provider information will be found in your billing (or front) office.
