Sept. 3, 2019
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) has updated 2 of our 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 as indicated, the following policies are being updated:
- Co-Surgeon/Team Surgeon Modifiers Effective 09/03/2019
- Chiropractic Services Effective 12/03/2019
(Note: There is a Chiropractic Services Clinical Payment and Coding Policy currently posted that will be effective 10/25/2019 – 12/02/2019.)
If you have any questions or if you need additional information, please contact your BCBSTX Network Management Representative.
