ClaimsXten™ Second Quarter 2014 Updates
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico (BCBSNM) reviews new and revised Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) and HCPCS codes on a quarterly basis. Codes are periodically added to or deleted from the ClaimsXten software by McKesson and are not considered changes to the software version. BCBSNM will normally load this additional data to the BCBSNM claim processing system within 60 to 90 days after receipt from McKesson and will confirm the effective date on the BCBSNM website. Advance notification of updates to the ClaimsXten software version (i.e., change from ClaimsXten v.4.1 to v4.4) will continue to be posted on the BCBSNM Provider website.
Beginning on or after May 19, 2014, BCBSNM will enhance the ClaimsXten code auditing tool by adding the second quarter codes and bundling logic into our claim processing system.
To help determine how coding combinations on a particular claim may be evaluated during the claim adjudication process, you may continue to utilize Clear Claim Connection™ (C3). C3 is a free, online reference tool that mirrors the logic behind BCBSNM's code-auditing software. Refer to our website for additional information on gaining access to C3.
For updates on ClaimsXten, watch the News and Updates on our Provider website, as well as upcoming issues of the Blue Review.
