Inventory of Health Care Information Standards. NCPDP Standard Claims Billing Version 2.0


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.
