Cervical Cancer Screening Codes
Together, we understand the critical importance of women receiving cervical cancer screening for early identification to enhance their safety and the health outcomes. To monitor the cervical cancer screenings of BCBSWY members, please help us by including all applicable cervical cancer screening codes for your patients along with the global billing codes. A coding guide is provided for your convenience here. Thank you for your dedication to healthy outcomes and assisting BCBSWY.
