Posted May 8, 2017

The information in this notice applies to claims submitted electronically for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) Medicaid members enrolled in any of the following plans:  

  • Blue Cross Community MMAI (Medicare-Medicaid Plan)SM
  • Blue Cross Community Integrated Care Plan (ICP)SM
  • Blue Cross Community Family Health PlanSM (FHP)

Institutional electronic claims (837I transactions) for members enrolled in any of the above mentioned Medicaid plans that were submitted with revenue codes of 0944 and 0945 and inpatient place of treatment may have been rejected erroneously for missing accommodation codes.

An example error message that providers may have received for these rejected claims is as follows: Accommodations Service Line: Required; must be entered on inpatient claims.

Please note that this issue was resolved on April 27, 2017, and providers impacted by these rejections may now resubmit the affected claims.

We appreciate your patience and apologize for any inconvenience this issue may have caused.
