BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina and BlueChoice® HealthPlan have adopted the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) coding guidelines for casting and splint supplies administered by practitioners. We will now allow CPT codes Q4001 – Q4051 for dates of service beginning March 1, 2019. Please begin using these codes in place of A4580 and A4590. Future claims submitted for A4580 or A4590 will not be reimbursed.
BlueChoice will adjust previously submitted claims on your behalf; therefore, it is not necessary for you to inquire on these claims.
Review your current coding practices and update as needed.
If you have questions about this bulletin, please contact Provider Relations and Education by submitting the Provider Education Contact Form or by calling 803-264-4730 and a knowledgeable education specialist will respond.
