New Clinical Payment and Coding Policy

July 31, 2019

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) has implemented the Pneumatic Compression Devices – Outpatient Use – Clinical Payment and Coding Policy. This policy is based on criteria developed by specialized professional societies, national guidelines (e.g., MCGTM) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Provider Reimbursement Manual. Additional sources are used and can be provided upon request. The clinical payment and coding guidelines are not intended to provide billing or coding advice but to serve as a reference for facilities and providers.

Please review the details of this policy effective Nov. 1, 2019:

Refer to Clinical Payment and Coding Policies under Standards and Requirements on the provider website for the Clinical Payment and Coding Policies that are available.

If you have any questions or if you need additional information, please contact your BCBSTX Network Management Representative.
