Any other pertinent information

Nevada Compare Care is where you will now submit you UB-04 data files. The old site/submission portal was disabled as of 2/29/24. Once you have registered for an account on the site and completed the BAA signing process, you will be able to submit your data files.

Although many of these requirements apply to individual medical professionals and other types of hospitals and health care facilities, the information is presented solely to support Critical Access Hospitals.
