Results of NUCC Survey on 1500 Form Usage

January 29, 2018

The NUCC conducted a survey from October to November 2017 to gather information on the current usage in the industry of the 1500 Health Insurance Claim Form (1500 Form), both as a paper form and as a print image. The results of the survey are available here.

Overall, the survey found that there continues to be significant use of the 1500 Form within the industry.  The top reasons for using the 1500 Form among all stakeholders were 1) attachments; 2) coordination of benefits; 3) workers' compensation, property and casualty, and auto claims; 4) claims for specific services; and 5) primary claims.

The NUCC plans to use the information from this survey in its general work on the professional claim and its data content.  This survey is not an indication of any specific changes being considered for the 1500 Form.
