Effective April 10, 2012 - CPT and HCPCS Codes to be Included on UB-04 Claim submissions
Provider Update: Effective April 10, 2012 - BCBSNC Requires CPT and HCPCS Codes to be Included on UB-04 Claim submissions
As previously communicated, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBSNC) will be installing system edits that will result in the rejection of certain outpatient and ambulatory surgery UB-04 claims when filed without appropriate CPT and HCPCS codes, effective April 10, 2012.
Attached to this notice is a listing of impacted revenue codes. Please replace any previous listing you may have received with this updated version.
Remember, Blue Medicare HMOSM and Blue Medicare PPOSM are NOT impacted by this change.
BCBSNC appreciates your cooperation and we apologize for any inconvenience resulting from implementation of these edits. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Network Management at 1-800-777-1643.
