Clear Claim ConnectionTM
Clear Claim Connection – C3 – is a free online reference tool that mirrors the logic behind BCBSIL’s code-auditing software, ClaimsXtenTM.* You can use C3 to help determine how coding combinations on a particular claim may be evaluated during the adjudication process.
- To gain access to C3, you must be registered with AvailityTM. Register with Availity online, or contact Availity Client Services at 800-AVAILITY (282-4548).
- Once you are registered, look for the “More” tab on the Availity Web portal navigation menu, then select “Research Procedure Code Edits” to access C3.
- For additional information and instructions, refer to the following document: Clear Claim Connection (C3) for ClaimsXten 6.0.
It is important to note that C3 does not contain all of the claim edits and processes used by BCBSIL in adjudicating claims and the results from use of the C3 tool are not a guarantee of the final claim determination.
