BCBSIL Modifier Denials - Ron Short, DC, MCS-P, CPC, CPCO

In the August 2017 issue of Blue Review Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) announced:

Code-Auditing Enhancement - Effective Nov. 12, 2017, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) will be implementing a code-auditing enhancement to its claim system.  This software will help improve auditing of professional and outpatient facility claims that are submitted to BCBSIL by clinically validating modifiers submitted on such claims.  Upon implementation of the code-auditing enhancement, providers may use the Claim Research Too, available on the Availity Web Portal, to research specific claim edits.  For additional information, watch the Blue Review, as well as the News and Updates section of the provider website.

The above notice does not apply to government program claims.

The result of this code auditing enhancement has been the wholesale denial of claims with the 25 and 59 (including XE, XS, XP, or XU) modifiers.  This is not just affecting chiropractors but medical doctors and physical therapists too.     Read More       ChiroCode      BCBS Claim Inquiry Tip Sheet
