Claim specific rules

Claim specific rules are used when a payer requests certain information to be included in a particular section of the claim form. These rules need to be set up for each insurance company that you want to change what is displayed on the CMS 1500 claim form. When adding or editing a payer in the Insurance Companies section of Practice Setup, claim specific rules can be created at the bottom of the screen. Click here to learn more!
