BCBSNC Implementing Policy Changes to Some CPT Codes

Effective November 1, 2010, Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina will be implementing policy changes to specific Current Procedural Technology (CPT) codes.  The changes will affect multiple surgery reduction procedures and are consistent with BCBSNC’s multiple procedure payment policies.

The majority of codes will eliminate the multiple surgery reduction rules, and the CPT codes will no longer reduce when filed in conjunction with other procedures. The codes affected by this change are 93561, 93562, 90935, 90937, 90945, 90947, 02700, and 92975.
