New Year, New CMS-1500 Claim Form

Effective January 6, registered dietitian nutritionists who bill third-party payers using the CMS-1500 form need to begin transitioning to use of the revised form (version 02/12). By April 1, all paper claims must be submitted on version 02/12 only. The biggest changes to the form are the addition of an ICD indicator, an increase in the number of diagnosis codes that can be reported and the removal of several fields.

The updated CMS 1500 claim form (version 02/12) adds the following functionality on Line 21:

  • Ability to indicate whether you are using ICD-9-CM or ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes (9 = ICD-9-CM; 0 = ICD-10-CM).
  • Expansion of the number of possible diagnosis codes from 4 to 12.
