CMS-1500 Claim Form (02/12)  –  Updated

Medicare began accepting the 02/12 version of the CMS-1500 beginning January 6, 2014. Both the 02/12 and 08/05 versions will be accepted during a dual use period through March 31, 2014. After that date, all Medicare paper claims must be submitted on the 02/12 version of the CMS-1500. All insurance companies are transitioning to the new form, but you should check with each one to find out when they will begin accepting it.
