ClaimsXtenTM Quarterly Updates
New and revised Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) and 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 New Mexico (BCBSNM) will normally load this additional data to the BCBSNM claim processing system within 60 to 90 days after receipt from the software vendor and will confirm the effective date via the News and Updates section of the BCBSNM Provider website. Advance notification of updates to the ClaimsXten software version (i.e., change from ClaimsXten version 4.1 to 4.4) also will be posted on the BCBSNM Provider website.
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 we believe results in improved 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 BCBSNM’s code auditing software. Refer to our website at bcbsnm.com/provider for additional information on gaining access to C3.
For more details regarding ClaimsXten, refer to the Education & Reference/Tools/ Clear Claim Connection page NM on our Provider website at bcbsnm.com/provider.Information also may be published in upcoming issues of the Blue Review.
Checks of eligibility and/or benefit information are 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.
