We have completed our review of the 20 de abril23 CPT code changes, including any category II performance measurement tracking codes and category II temporary codes for emerging technology. These updates will be added to our claims processing system and are effective 1 de abril de 2023. The list includes codes that have special coverage or payment rules for standard products. (Some employers may customize their benefits.) We have included codes for services that are:

  • “Not Covered" – This includes services not covered in the main member certificate (e.g., covered as a prescription drug).
  • “Not Medically Necessary" – This indicates services where there is insufficient evidence to support it.
  • “Not Separately Reimbursed" – Services that are not separately reimbursed are generally included in payment for another service or are reported using another code and may not be billed to your patient.
  • “Subject to Medical Review" – Preauthorization is recommended for commercial products and required for BlueCHiP for Medicare.
  • “Invalid" – Use alternate procedure codes, such as a CPT or HCPCS code.
  • “Medicare Lab Network" – Codes that are reimbursed to a hospital laboratory outside of the laboratory network, physicians, or urgent care center providers for BlueCHiP for Medicare.
  • “Pending CMS determination" – For BlueCHiP for Medicare Category III codes.
