This batch format is compatible to and consistent with the standard Universal Claim Form to
enable logical progression from a manual paper claims submission system to an automated
billing process. The Standard Claims Billing format utilizes both data elements and program
logic that include the following items or understandings:
- Use of industry accepted data elements (National Drug Code Number (NDC), National Association of Boards of Pharmacy Number (NABP) Processor number, etc.).
- Contingency allowance for future enhancements.
- Compatibility of the format to most existing processing systems.
