BCBSWY would like to encourage Providers billing CPT code 83036 to include the category claims as this will be a focus beginning Jan. 1, 2024.
For best habits, please begin using the below guidance now to ensure proper categorization.
CPT 83036 for a HbA1c laboratory test will need the appropriate Category II code on the same claim.
CAT II codes are an informational code and should be billed with either a $0.00 charge or a $0.01 charge if required by your system or clearing house.
CAT II codes are for diagnostic/ screening processes or results.
