In order to increase health care provider participation in the workers' compensation system and improve injured workers' access to timely, quality medical care, the Workers' Compensation Board (Board) is supporting electronic submission of CMS-1500 forms, along with a medical narrative. The CMS-1500 streamlines medical billing and may reduce the paperwork requirements currently in the workers' compensation system.
Free webinar to address your questions
The Board is hosting two free online Q&A webinars to give you an update on the initiative and answer your questions about CMS-1500. Each one-hour session will provide a brief overview of the CMS-1500 initiative as well as the most frequently asked questions we’ve received. We will use the remaining time to answer any additional questions you have. Each webinar will cover identical material.
Registration is required. You can register for either session at: http://www.wcb.ny.gov/webinars/
April 7, 2020: 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.
April 8, 2020: 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
We encourage you to review the CMS-1500 training video (recorded from the first CMS-1500 webinars held in September 2019) and make note of any questions you have prior to attending one of the webinars.
You can also visit CMS-1500 Initiative and CMS-1500 FAQ for more information. The Board will post responses to questions received during the webinars in the FAQ section of the website.
