Procedure Code and Fee Schedule Updates, Effective Jan. 1, 2020

Posted September 26, 2019

As part of our commitment to help inform our independently contracted providers of certain developments, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) has designated a specific section in the Blue Review to notify you of any significant changes to the physician fee schedules. It’s important to review this section each month.  

At times, information also may be posted in the News and Updates, such as the following notification: 

Effective Jan. 1, 2020, Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) codes Q5108 and Q5111 will be updated.

The information above is not intended to be an exhaustive listing of all the changes. Annual and quarterly fee schedule updates may also be requested by using the Fee Schedule Request Form. Specific code changes that are listed above may also be obtained by downloading the Fee Schedule Request Form and specifically requesting the updates on the codes listed in the Blue Review. The form is available on the Forms page on our Provider website.
