ClaimsXtenTM Edits for Compression Device Accessories, Effective Dec. 14, 2015

Sep. 11, 2015

Beginning on or after Dec.14, 2015, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Montana (BCBSMT) will enhance the ClaimsXten code auditing tool by adding incidental edits to our claim processing system for Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) codes for Compression Device Accessories (such as E0655 through E0673). This new edit will be effective for claims submitted with dates of service on or after the implementation date.

When codes such as E0655 through E0673 are billed for Compression Device Accessories along with code E0676, the all-inclusive code for Compression Devices, the accessories will be denied as inclusive to the device and therefore ineligible for separate payment.
