A part of HIPAA these forms have standardized all medical insurance billing. Available in red and white these forms can be purchased from different suppliers as a single or multiple copies with continuous form feed or laser print with or without the barcode.

The type of form that you require also depends upon the printer type and your need to retain the original copy of the form or not. Most of the practice management systems are capable of printing these forms along with the claim but if in case you are using a color printer then it could pose a problem while submitting the form as it would get printed in red while the claim in black ink.

Insurance companies may also return back the incomplete or inaccurate form along with the explanation of the denial only in certain circumstances. Though these forms are meant for medical billing, but there are certain instances like for on job injury or workers’ compensation claim these forms cannot be used.

These forms may vary from state to state and can easily be downloaded from the state workers’ compensation website.
