As an important Medical Billing Service Alert, the CMS (Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services) web site, announced today that as of April 1, 2014, the CMS “will no longer accept the CMS-1500 (08-05) claim form.”  Most importantly, the CMS advises that Physicians, Medical Practices and Medical Billers should “begin using the new CMS-1500 (02-12) claim form now” in order to avoid medical claim delays.

This change by the CMS is in preparation for ICD-10 (ICD10) which goes into affect on October 1, 2014.

As an important warning, the CMS web site notes that if the CMS-1500 (08-05) form is received on or after April 1, 2014, it will be returned to the sender, even if it was postmarked prior to April 1, 2014.
