Currently, Colorado Medicaid providers submit professional claims via the Colorado Medical Assistance Program Web Portal or through the Colorado 1500 (CO-1500) paper claim form. In preparation for the ICD-10 implementation, the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing is transitioning all professional paper claim submissions to the OMB-0938-1-1197 Form 1500 (02-12) (CMS 1500) paper claim form, effective Dec. 1, 2014. All CO-1500 claim forms received after Dec. 1, 2014 will be denied.

Providers are encouraged to submit claims electronically; any provider who submits professional claims by paper will need to purchase the form online or through an available retailer.
