The National Uniform Claim Committee (NUCC) announced that effective April 2, 2007, a revised CMS-1500 (08-05) form would replace the current CMS-1500 (12-90) form. The revised form requires all providers include a National Provider Identifier (NPI).
Due to a formatting error with the revised form, NUCC has extended to June 1, 2007, the date for providers who use paper forms for bill submission to use CMS-1500 (08-05).
