Important fields of the CMS 1500 Form during the claim submission

Claims submitted for payment should be in a HIPAA accepted 837 file format and filed electronically using the CarePlus Payer ID 95092 to Availity at www.availity.com. If all EDI methods have failed and the provider has contacted the CarePlus Claims Status team for assistance, the provider may then submit  their claim on a properly completed CMS 1500 form within the time frame specified in their contract.
