October 2018 Anthem Ohio Provider Newsletter
Sep 28, 2018 • Policy Updates / Reimbursement PoliciesBeginning with dates of service on or after January 1, 2019, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield (Anthem) will require that facilities billing outpatient services on a UB04 report current and valid CPT or HCPCS codes with revenue codes as specified by the National Uniform Billing Committee (NUBC). Anthem will also require that outpatient facilities report current and valid CPT or HCPCS codes for remaining revenue codes when, and if, appropriate CPT or HCPCS codes are available for the revenue codes being reported. In addition, Anthem will require that applicable CPT or HCPCS modifiers be reported with the CPT or HCPCS codes to clarify or improve the accuracy of the procedure being reported when appropriate.
