HFMA is a member and one of the founders of the National Uniform Billing Committee (NUBC), a voluntary, multi-disciplinary committee that maintains the integrity of the UB-92 data set and develops mutually agreed upon data elements for claim and claim-related transactions. The NUBC helps to define the data content associated with each of the electronic transactions and code sets mentioned in the HIPAA legislation.
NUBC's work is coordinated through the offices of the American Hospital Association and includes the participation of all major national provider and payer organizations. It was originally formed to develop a single billing form and standard data set that could be used nationwide by institutional providers and payers for handling healthcare claims. This resulted in the development and implementation of the UB-82. The NUBC is working on the next generation of the uniform bill, the UB-04.
