ClaimsXtenTM Quarterly Updates
New and revised Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) and Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) codes are periodically added to, or deleted from, the ClaimsXten code auditing tool software by the software vendor on a quarterly basis and are not considered changes to the software version. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma (BCBSOK) will normally load this additional data to the BCBSOK claim processing system after receipt from the software vendor and will confirm the effective date via the News and Updates section of the BCBSOK Provider website. Advance notification of updates to the ClaimsXten software version also will be posted on the BCBSOK Provider website.
To help determine how some coding combinations on a particular claim may be evaluated during the claim adjudication process, you may continue to use Clear Claim ConnectionTM (C3). C3 is a free, online reference tool. Refer to the Clear Claim Connection page on our website for more information on gaining access to C3, as well as answers to frequently asked questions about ClaimsXten. Updates may be included in future issues of the Blue Review. Note: C3 does not contain all of the claim edits and processes used by BCBSOK in adjudicating claims, and the results from use of the C3 tool are not a guarantee of the final claim determination.
