ClaimsXtenTM Quarterly Updates
New and revised Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) and HCPCS codes are periodically added to or deleted from the ClaimsXten code auditing tool software by the software vendor on a quarterly basis and are not considered changes to the software version. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) will normally load this additional data to the BCBSTX claim processing system within 60 to 90 days after receipt from the software vendor and will confirm the effective date via the News and Updates section of the BCBSTX Provider website. Advance notification of updates to the ClaimsXten software version (i.e., change from ClaimsXten version 4.1 to 4.4) also will be posted on the BCBSTX Provider website.
To help determine how coding combinations on a particular claim may be evaluated during the claim adjudication process, you may continue to utilize Clear Claim ConnectionTM (C3). C3 is a free, online reference tool that mirrors the logic behind BCBSTX’s code-auditing software. Refer to our provider website for additional information on gaining access to C3.
For more details regarding ClaimsXten, including answers to frequently asked questions, refer to the Clear Claim ConnectionTM page. Additional information also may be included in upcoming issues of the Blue Review.
Checks of eligibility and/or benefit information are not a guarantee of payment. Benefits will be determined once a claim is received and will be based upon, among other things, the member’s eligibility and the terms of the member’s certificate of coverage applicable on the date services were rendered.
