This reminder applies to hospital providers, Healthcare and Family Services (HFS) type 30, 31 and 32, who submit claims to Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) for our Blue Cross Community Health PlansSM (BCCHPSM) members.
BCBSIL has aligned its claim coding with HFS regarding covered and non-covered revenue codes for Medicaid claims.
HFS maintains a list of non-covered revenue codes . Billing with these codes will result in a claim rejection.
The Illinois Association of Medicaid Health Plans (IAMHP) also provides an additional resource for hospital providers. Guidance can be found on page 90 of the IAMHP manual
