Paper Claims Settings

  1. Select the appropriate settings for the insurance company.
    1. Select the Insured Format from the drop-down menu. 
      • To prevent information from printing in Boxes 4 and 7 and to print NONE in Box 11, select Medicare style; otherwise, leave as Default
    2. CMS-1500 field 24g: Select Units (standard) or Minutes (typically only used for anesthesia related charges) from the drop-down menu.
    3. CMS-1500 field 32b: Click to select or clear the selection for "Use Facility ID". 
      Note: When enabled, the Facility ID Number entered in the Service Location record populates Box 32b. This is typically only required if the service location has been assigned a unique Facility ID number by the payer. 
    4. Primary Billing Form: Select the CMS-1500 format that is required by this insurance company (as the primary payer on a claim) from the drop-down menu.
    5. Secondary Billing Form: Select the CMS-1500 format that is required by this insurance company (as the secondary or tertiary payer on a claim) from the drop-down menu.
      Tip_Icon.pngTip: Check with the payer if there is any uncertainty, but in most cases, the same form for both primary and secondary claims can be used.
    6. Under the Institutional Claim Format Settings, the Primary Billing Form currently only has one format; UB-04 Form
  2. Click Save.
