Why is it changing? The
UB04 contains a number of improvements and enhancements that
better alignment with the electronic HIPAA ASC X12N
837-Institutional Transaction Standard. The New UB04 paper billing
form will be able to accommodate the reporting of the National
Provider Identifier (NPI) Number. The NPI will be a single provider
identifier, replacing the different provider identifiers healthcare
systems currently use for each health plan with which you do
business. The NPI Identifier, which implements a requirement
of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of
1996 (HIPAA), must be used by all HIPAA covered entities, which
are health plans, healthcare clearinghouses, and healthcare providers.UB04
