Title: Medicare Part A billing UB04
Post by: Dchris0025 on September 29, 2011, 02:41:17 PM
We were approved as outpatient clinic as Medicare A (should have been B). My question is on billing UB04 and finding info on how to fill out this form.  Or how long do you estimate it taking to change over Medicare Part B.

How did you get approved as a Part A if it should have been part B?  Did you have to submit an entirely new part B application?  If so, that can take anywhere from 6 to 12 weeks.  Anyway, completing the UB04 can be complicated if you are only used to the CMS 1500.  We have a book on completing it.  You can view information on the book at:
