UB 04

The CMS needs to be ready to receive the new UB-04 by March 1, 2007.
Institutional providers can use the UB-04 beginning March 1, 2007, however, they will have a transitional period between March 1, 2007 and May 22, 2007 where they can use the UB-04 or the UB-92. Starting May 23, 2007 all institutional paper claims must use the UB-04. The UB-92 will no longer be accepted after this date. The UB-04 incorporates the National Provider Identifier (NPI), taxonomy, and additional codes . Many UB-92 data locations have changed on the UB-04 although most of the data usage descriptions and allowable data values have not changed. Bill type processing will change. Note that this CR does not expand the claim record used for processing. Starting May 23, 2007, all UB-04s must nclude a valid NPI.
Starting May 23, 2007 all institutional paper claims must be received on theUB-04. The UB-92 will no longer be accepted after this date. The UB-04 incorporates the National Provider Identifier (NPI), taxonomy, and additional codes.
Generally it has 81 Field and we will see each and every field in coming posts.
