Although the new CMS 1500 paper claim form became available for use on October 1, 2006, providers have until June 2007, before they are required to submit insurance claims with the NPI number and use the revised CMS 1500 form. Many health plans, including Medicare, Medicaid, private health insurance issuers, and all health care clearinghouses must accept and use NPIs in standard transactions by May 23, 2007. Small health plans have until May 23, 2008, to accept and use NPIs in standard transactions. After those compliance dates, health care providers may use only their NPIs to identify themselves in standard transactions, where the NPI is called for. The period between now and June 2007 is considered a "transition period," during which you may submit insurance claims using the new CMS 1500 for or the old HCFA 1500 form.
