01/01/1997

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.
