Abstract

This article describes a method for printing many different Health Insurance Claims using online tables to specify the location of the data on the forms. Health Care providers are required by health insurers to submit claims using many different forms. These forms usually require that the same set of data appear on the forms in different locations. Even with the advent of the Uniform Bill of 1982 (UB82), each insurer requires something different on the form. The Table Driven Health Insurance Claim Preparation facility of the Patient Care System - Patient Accounting Program (5668-13) assists Health Care Providers in specifying forms for Patient Bills, Insurance Bills and Insurance Claims.
