Title: Questions on filling out 1500 for workman's comp?
Post by: MIDOC on September 07, 2017, 11:23:12 PM
For a workman's comp claim, on the CMS 1500, where do I enter the claim number?  Does it go in 1a, where the patient's member ID would normally be entered, or in 11?

I am a provider in Michigan, and we had to let go of our biller, unfortunately.  I'll be submitting claims for a few weeks, while we find a replacement. 

Thanks in advance!

When we submit WC claims using CMS forms we put the claim number in 1a, or the insured id number spot.  We also put the WCB number (in NY all WC cases are assigned a WCB number) in the group number field.
