What Is the Difference Between the UB-92 and HCFA-1500 Forms?

The primary difference between the two forms is related to who uses them - medical facilities (UB-92) vs individual practitioners (HCFA-1500). The UB-92 medical claim form is used by medical institutions, such as hospitals, nursing facilities and other facility providers. The HCFA-1500 medical claim form is used by non-institutional health care service providers or medical professionals, such as individual doctors, nurses and therapists.
