If the required documentation is not submitted, the claim may be denied. Anthem Blue Cross may request additional documentation or notify the provider or facility of additional documentation required for claims, subject to contractual obligations.


Effective March 1, 2019, if an itemized bill is requested and/or required, then it must include the appropriate revenue code for each individual charge.
