Since everyone should be using the 0212 Claim Form by now, we have made 0212 the default in the following areas:  
- Creating a HCFA
- Adding a New Payer - Printing Options for Primary, Secondary or Tertiary Insurance
 
You will see the 0212 option as your first choice. 0805 is still there if you need it but you will have to select it from the drop down menu.
