X12 Studio – PDF Claim Form Generator Feature

Exporting X12 837 claim files into standardized CMS1500 or UB-04 forms is simple with T-Connect X12 Studio Toolbox’s PDF Claim Form Generator. CMS1500 is the standardized form for X12 837P (Professional) EDI files.  The CMS1450, aka UB-04, provides the form for 837I (Institutional).  Both forms are provided by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The PDF claim files can be used to view, archive, or manage EDI claims into a human-readable form.  Our Claim Form Generator feature is a very useful tool for EDI Analysts, overlaying 837 EDI data onto industry-standardized forms.
