In the past, the only way to be sure you were completing the UB04 forms correctly, was to purchase an expensive thick reference book which was designed for hospital billing... we call it the "big book"!
This "big book" is updated several times a year, and most of the information in the "big book" does not even pertain to clinics and outpatient facilities! Not to mention that the "big book" was written in very difficult to understand technical jargon, so just finding the information that you need in this "big book" is like wading around through a haystack... looking for your precious little needle!
Not to mention that it costs over $300! Way to much money to spend for the small amount of information that actually applies to you & your facility!
As you know... UB04 instructions can be very difficult to understand! What? No one told you that being a rocket scientist was a requirement to be able to bill for your company? Yes, we say that playfully, but you & I both know how much time can be spent just trying to figure out this one form!
But... even though it's only one form... YOU still have the responsibility of figuring it out and filling it in correctly! Because if you don't... your facility LOOSES IT'S MONEY! And, I know you wouldn't want that to happen!
We've gotten SO MANY pleas for help from our "Ask the Biller" page about filling out these forms, that we decided enough is enough! It was time to take action & simplify this process for our billing friends! If we didn't do something, they were going to keep being denied by the insurance companies!
So... we came up with this very simple "step by step" manual to help billers fill in their UB04 Forms correctly & completely on the very first try! And... no... we're not rocket scientists, so we don't talk like rocket scientists! We wanted this manual to be very easy to understand. As a matter of fact, we feel that even if you are a beginner, you will be able to follow the line by line, box by box format & get it right on your first try!
If you bill insurance claims for a clinic or facility, this book is a MUST!
Just one of the drug & alcohol clinics who used our information reported that it brought in several thousand extra dollars in money that would have been lost due to claim denials!
