A new revision of the CMS-1500 is planned for 2014. This new revision is to version 02/12 of the CMS-1500. Therabill will follow the planned transitional period with the implementation of the 02/12 revision of the CMS-1500.
The timeline for the 02/12 CMS-1500 is as follows.
- January 6th 2014 - Payers can begin receiving and processing version 02/12
- January 6th 2014 - March 31st 2014 - Transitional period for dual use of version 08/05 and 02/12. Payers will continue to receive and process both formats.
- April 1st 2014 - Payers will only receive and process version 02/12
Therabill's Preliminary Timeline for implementation
Therabill does not have an exact date at the time of this writing as to when we will make the switch to the 02/12 version. Therabill usually likes to make changes like this some time in the middle of the transition period in order to give the payers time to work out their bugs. We expect to be offering the 02/12 version in early to mid March
