Providers may now submit diagnostic bills (HCFA-1500 forms) online

Black Lung clinics and 413(b) medical providers may now submit pre-coded HCFA-1500 bills using the C.O.A.L. Mine portal.

Please use the new 'Fiscal' document category when submitting HCFA-1500 forms for diagnostic examinations. Do not include the medical report in this category; medical reports should be submitted using the 'Medical' category.

Please note that treatment bills cannot be submitted via the C.O.A.L. Mine portal. These documents must continue to be mailed to our medical bill processing vendor at:

US DOL Federal Black Lung Program
P.O. Box 8302
