cms 1500 ENVELOPE - FOLDING TIPS

Stuffing Envelopes

NAS receives many overstuffed envelopes. This causes the material to become damaged, partially received, or lost altogether before it arrives in our office.

NAS recommends including no more than four sheets of paper per regular #10 envelope. When submitting
more than four pages, a larger “flat” envelope that measures roughly 9” x 12” should be used. This will reduce
the need for folding claims, reducing the amount of claims damaged during the opening process.
Claims should not be rubber banded or stapled together. When folding claims, one of the “thirds” should
be larger than the other two. This will leave a small amount of space in the envelope that will allow our
envelope slicing and extracting equipment to open the envelope without damaging the claims. DO NOT
FOLD CLAIMS INTO EQUAL SECTIONS.

Envelopes should also contain similar contents. For example, one envelope should contain claims, another
should contain correspondence. The time it takes to process all items received will improve if different items
are mailed separately.
