Claim Rejections for Modifiers XE, XP, XS and XU

Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota (BCBSND) has received feedback from providers that they are seeing claim rejections with the submission of modifiers XE, XP, XS or XU. Providers receiving rejections should electronically correct the claim with a frequency 7 to add the late charges versus voiding the claim with a frequency 8. Submitting a new claim may cause a duplicate denial. For additional information on claims correction, see our provider manual located on our BCBSND website.

For additional information regarding these modifiers, refer to our reimbursement policy regarding modifiers XE, XP, XS and XU.
