Ground Ambulance Reimbursement Update

BCBSWY has increased ground ambulance rates 3%, effective January 1, 2021.

Reminder : Accurately Code for COVID-19 Vaccine

To ensure timely reimbursement for COVID-19 vaccine administration , we remind you to use the accurate vaccine codes .

The AMA has developed a free tool to help determine the appropriate CPT code combination for the type and dose of vaccine that you are using. It uses a series of questions to help you arrive at the appropriate code. These codes incorporate the specialized tracking needs of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid by identifying two code groups. One group identifies a specific vaccine product and the other provides a vaccine administration code that is both vaccine and dose specific.

Please visit the AMA website to see the vaccine calculator . It is a useful tool in the response to COVID-19.

Upcoming Holiday Closure
BCBSWY will be closed on Monday, January 18 in observance of Wyoming Equality Day. Phone lines will re open, Tuesday at 8 :00 a.m.
