ClaimsXtenTM Second Quarter 2014 Updates

February 5, 2014

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma (BSBSOK) reviews new and revised Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) and HCPCS codes on a quarterly basis. Codes are periodically added to or deleted from the ClaimsXten software by McKesson and are not considered changes to the software version. BCBSOK will normally load this additional data to the BCBSOK claim processing system within 60 to 90 days after receipt from McKesson and will confirm the effective date on the BCBSOK website.  Advance notification of updates to the ClaimsXten software version (i.e., change from ClaimsXten v.4.1 to v4.4) will continue to be posted on the BCBSOK Provider website.

Beginning on or after May 19, 2014, BCBSOK will enhance the ClaimsXten code auditing tool by adding the second quarter codes and bundling logic into our claim processing system.

Continue to watch the News and Updates for ClaimsXten implementation notifications and other BCBSOK news, programs and initiatives. Additional information also may be included in upcoming issues of the Blue Review.
