Expanded coverage of COVID-19-related services for telehealth and testing is effective March 1 through the end of the emergency declaration. Please visit Expanded Coverage for Members for more information.
Many telehealth services (indicated by place of service 02) have a site-of-service differential, so reimbursement may be less when provided via telehealth.
Rates associated with codes and corresponding site of service differentials are only available through the fee schedule portal. If you have not registered for access to the portal, register at www.bcbsnd.com/FeeSchedules.
When providing services out of your affiliated billing location, no changes are necessary.
When providing services out of a location not affiliated with your profile, it must be added in order to submit claims. Please utilize the following form: Add a Location.
If you opt to temporarily perform services from your own home rather than your office, you will not need to add your home address to your profile. Claims should be submitted as if in the main practice location.
When utilizing providers outside of the BCBSND service area, there are separate billing requirements. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
