CMS-1500 form revised to fit more diagnosis codes, less patient demographic information
It doesn’t get used nearly as much as it used to, but there is a new CMS-1500 claim form that has been revised slightly to fit more diagnosis codes and to facilitate the transition to the ICD-10-CM coding system set for Oct. 1, 2014. The new CMS-1500 form will also collect a little less patient information.

While most claims are now filed electronically, changes to the paper CMS-1500 often result in changes to the information collected in an electronic claims filing.

Here’s what you need to know, according to CMS transmittal 2842 to the Medicare Claims Processing Manual:
