5010 question
« on: November 29, 2011, 11:24:50 PM »
We're all set for 5010 for our EDI billing.  However,  I have a few patients that a couple of my clients have a special contract with a certain insurance company.   For these particular claims, according to patient policies, I have to send in a paper claim along with progress notes for each visit.  The Pay-To box 33 is to a P.O. Box address.  The Insurance Co does have the physical address on file.  But there is no way to put a physical address into box 33 if you want payment to go to P. O. Box.   Are the 1500 forms going to be revised?  Should I just keeping filing as usual - 1500 claim form with notes attached (on paper)?

That's a good question.. I know the PO Box option is NO longer going to be accepted..  with that said I am guessing that YES this will have to be changed for paper claims as well.
