Enhancements to ClaimsXtenTM Code Auditing Tool

April 15, 2013

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma (BCBSOK) will enhance the ClaimsXten code auditing tool by adding the second quarter code and bundling logic into our claim processing system beginning on or after July 15, 2013.

The ClaimsXten tool offers flexible, rules-based claims management with the capability of creating customized rules, as well as the ability to read historical claims data. ClaimsXten can automate claim review, code auditing and payment administration, which could improve performance of overall claims management.

To help determine how coding combinations on a particular claim may be evaluated during the claim adjudication process, you may continue to utilize Clear Claim ConnectionTM (C3). C3 is a free, online reference tool that mirrors the logic behind BCBSOK's code-auditing software. Refer to our website for additional information on gaining access to C3.

For updates on the ClaimsXten implementation and other BCBSOK news, programs and initiatives, refer to the BCBSOK Provider website. Additional information also may be included in upcoming issues of the Blue Review.

Verification of eligibility and/or benefit information is not a guarantee of payment. Benefits will be determined once a claim is received and will be based upon, among other things, the member's eligibility and the terms of the member's certificate of coverage applicable on the date services were rendered.
