The Office of Management and Budget and the National Uniform Billing Committee have approved the UB-04 claim form, also known as the CMS-1450 form. The Form UB-04 (CMS-1450) answers the needs of many health insurers. It is the basic form prescribed by CMS for the Medicare program and is only accepted from institutional providers that are excluded from the mandatory electronic claims submission requirements set forth in the Administrative Simplification Compliance Act, Pub.L. 107-105 (ASCA) and the implementing regulation at 42 CFR 424.32. Hospitals, nursing homes, hospice, home health agencies, and other institutional providers use the UB04 form.
