(1) The commission shall prescribe a standard health claim form to be used by all hospitals and a standard health claim form to be used by all physicians, dentists, and pharmacists. Such forms shall be in a format that allows for the use of generally accepted coding systems by providers in order to facilitate the processing of claims. Such forms shall provide for the disclosure by the claimant of the name, policy number, and address of every insurance policy which may cover the claimant with respect to the submitted claim except those policies specified in s. 627.4235(5). The required information on diagnosis, dental procedures, medical procedures, services, date of service, supplies, and fees may also be met by an attachment to the appropriate physician claim form. However, for the purpose of filing Medicaid claims, such attachments shall be prohibited. Such standard health claim forms shall be accepted by all insurers and all agencies, departments, and divisions of the state.
(2) This section does not apply to claims submitted by electronic or electromechanical means, except that such claims must include disclosure of every insurance policy which may cover the claimant with respect to the submitted claim.
