Simply open the CMS-1500.pdf file, fill in, Save and choose Print. Then change the settings of your color printer:

1) Set Page Scaling to None
2) If printing the patient disclaimer (page 2) be sure to choose two sided
printing, if not choose Print Range Pages 1-1.
3) Choose your Best Color or OCR Red color to produce the
Red* "dropout ink" for the form.

* Note - It may not be possible to replicate this color (OCR Red, Flint J-6983) with your printer. We recommend printing & sending a sample first, to be sure the form is accepted and processed.
