Field 5 - The “Patient’s Address” is the patient’s permanent residence. A temporary address or school address should not be used.

INSTRUCTIONS: Enter the patient’s address. The first line is for the street address; the second line, the city and state; the third line, the ZIP code.

Do not use punctuation (i.e., commas, periods) or other symbols in the address (e.g., 123 N Main Street 101 instead of 123 N. Main Street, #101). Report a 5 or 9-digit ZIP code. Enter the 9-digit ZIP code without the hyphen.

If reporting a foreign address, contact payer for specific reporting instructions.

If the patient’s address is the same as the insured’s address, then it is not necessary to report the patient’s address.
