Updates to Clinical Payment and Coding Policies
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) has implemented clinical payment and coding policies 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.
Effective April 1, 2019, the following policies are being implemented:
- Drug Testing Clinical Payment and Coding Policy
- Medical Record Documentation Guidelines
- Modifiers Reference Guide
If you have any questions or if you need additional information, please contact your BCBSTX Network Management Representative.
