Submitting a claim
When you complete the Medicare copy of the form the practitioner and patient copies will pre-fill. You cannot save a copy of the form to your computer but you can print a copy if you need to.
If you have completed the form the patient signs the Medicare copy only, and you provide them with a signed copy.
