Reimbursement Policies

We want to assist physicians, facilities and other providers in accurate claims submissions and to outline the basis for reimbursement if the service is covered by a member's Medi-Cal Managed Care or Anthem Blue Cross Cal MediConnect (Medicare-Medicaid Plan/MMP) plan.

Keep in mind that determination of coverage under a member's benefit plan does not necessarily ensure reimbursement. Please note:

  • These policies may be superseded by state, federal or CMS requirements.
  • Providers and facilities are required to use industry standard codes for claim submissions.
  • Services should be billed with CPT® codes, HCPCS codes and/or revenue codes.
  • The billed code(s) should be fully supported in the medical record and/or office notes.
  • Industry practices are constantly changing and we reserve the right to review and revise policies periodically.
