Multiple Procedures and Bilateral Procedures Reimbursement
As a reminder, effective January 1, 2021, Anthem Blue Cross (Anthem) is changing its methodology for reimbursing Multiple Procedure and Bilateral Procedure reimbursement for most Ambulatory Surgery Centers.
Medicare Advantage Reimbursement
Anthem sent participating ASCs an updated Medicare Advantage exhibit which contained updated Medicare Advantage reimbursement information that goes into effect January 1, 2021.
