The Workers Compensation Board is offering new resources to assist in the transition to Form CMS-1500, which will streamline medical billing and reduce the paperwork requirements currently in the workers compensation system.
To help you prepare, the Board has developed a training video to show health care providers, and all others who will be using Form CMS-1500, how to use the form and the required narrative reports to bill for their services to workers compensation patients.
The Board will also hold two follow-up Q&A webinars so that you can get answers to any questions you may have after viewing the training video and reading the CMS-1500 FAQ on the Board s website.
With that in mind, we encourage you to view the training video before attending one of the webinars. As you view the training video, take note of questions that come up so that you ll be prepared for the Q&A webinar. This will enable you to take full advantage of both resources.

8:30 a.m. - 9:30 a.m.
