Red-ink forms
The National Uniform Claim Committee (NUCC) is responsible for the design and maintenance of the CMS-1500 form.

The only acceptable claim forms are those printed in Flint OCR Red, J6983, (or exact match) ink. Although a copy of the CMS-1500 form can be printed from our software, copies of the form cannot be used for submission of claims, since your copy may not accurately replicate the OCR color of the form. The majority of paper claims sent to carriers and DMERCs are scanned using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology. This scanning technology allows for the data contents contained on the form to be read while the actual form fields, headings, and lines remain invisible to the scanner.

We can easily make the software print in red color with black text, but NUCC made it clear to us that they do not want us to do that.  The software prints the data on the red-ink form and will print a black copy for informational purposes.
