Wiki Billing Nexplanon device and insertion to BCBS.


Best answers
We are having a lot of issues with BCBS denying J7307 and 11981 stating that CMS has revised J-code format...? and that we need to be using a different dx code. We've been using Z30.46 but, it will no longer pay. Has anyone else had any trouble billing J-codes to BCBS? I would appreciate any help.
J code is still active. I wonder if it has to do with DX as the one you lists is for Removal, removal with reinsertion or just a check up.

Insertion only I believe is Z30.017 - Encounter for initial prescription of implantable subdermal contraceptive[FONT=&quot]
11981 is the only code for insertion of Nexplanon. It is not an anesthesia code.
