ClaimsXtenTM – 1st Quarter 2015

Posted January 16, 2015

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) 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. BCBSIL will normally load this additional data to the BCBSIL claim processing system within 60 to 90 days after receipt from McKesson and will confirm the effective date on the BCBSIL Provider website. Advance notification of updates to the ClaimsXten software version (i.e., change from ClaimsXten version 4.1 to 4.4) will continue to be posted on the BCBSIL Provider website.

Beginning on or after April 20, 2015, BCBSIL will enhance the ClaimsXten code auditing tool by adding the first quarter 2015 codes and bundling logic into our claim processing system.
