Formulary and Participating Pharmacies

member cost sharing contingent upon the type of medication prescribed.
• Requesting approval for non-Formulary medications or Formulary
medications requiring
prior authorization, designated in the Formulary by an
t
asterisk (*) or t ( ) next to the medication name, is the responsibility of the
prescribing physician.
• Non-Formulary exception process or prior authorization can be initiated by
contacting the Pharmacy Department.
• Effective July 1, 2015 a change was made to add new prior authorization
requirements for certain medical drugs that previously did not require

SPECIALTY PHARMACY DRUG PROGRAM
(OPTIONAL)
• The Health Plan is able to purchase certain drugs at discounted
rates through select Pharmacy Vendors passing savings on to
Members, employers and Participating Physicians.
• The use of this Drug Program eliminates your need to purchase
these drugs, thereby reducing your out-of-pocket expenses and
eliminating the need for you to submit medication claims to the
Health Plan.
• This program allows Participating Physicians two options:
• continue to “buy and bill” certain medications as usual at new
contracted rates, or
• utilize the Specialty Pharmacy Drug Program.
• More information on this Program along with the request form, can
be found on www.navinet.net.

schedule unless multiple surgery reduction applies
•
80, 81, or 82 modifiers – assistant surgeons

• Name of supervising physician in field 31 of the CMS 1500 form.
• Modifier AS must be submitted for these services.
• Do not submit 80, 81, or 82 to represent a non-physician assistant at
surgery.
BILLING INFORMATION - MODIFIERS
 59 Modifier – Distinct Procedural Service - used to identify
procedures/services, other than E/M services, that are not
normally reported together, but are appropriate under the
circumstances. Documentation must support a different
session, different procedure or surgery, different site or
organ system, separate incision/excision, separate lesion, or
separate injury (or area of injury in extensive injuries) not
ordinarily encountered or performed on the same day by
the same individual.
• Documentation must accompany the claim
BILLING INFORMATION - MODIFIERS
• 25 modifier - used to report a significant, separately
identifiable E & M service performed by the same provider on
the same day of the procedure or other service.
• Use 25 modifier when the E/M service is separate from
that required for the procedure and is a clearly
documented, distinct and significantly identifiable service
was rendered.
• Use 25 modifier on an E/M service on the same day as
procedure, the E/M service must have the key elements
(history, examination, medical decision making) well
documented.
BILLING INFORMATION - MODIFIERS
Example :
Patient presents for new onset of knee pain.
Provider examines the knee and “works up” the complaint to rule in/out possible
causes. Decision for treatment is a corticosteroid injection, which is performed at the
same visit.
Billed services are 99213-25 and 20610.
 This is a payable mod 25 service. Patient presents with a new problem to the
provider for which the exam and medical decision making were required to
determine if a procedure was necessary and would be tolerated versus
conservative treatment or specialist work-up.
 The exam and medical decision making was not the pre-procedural evaluation that
is considered to be included in the minor procedure and therefore, the mod 25
service was “above and beyond” that which is included in the procedure itself.
BILLING INFORMATION - MODIFIERS
 The modifier 25 modifier definition states “significant and
separately identifiable.” This refers to whether or not the
nature and amount of E/M services provided exceeded that
needed for performance of the procedure alone.
 Documentation should accompany the claim.
 Claims can be submitted initially with notes via paper
 Claims can be appealed after initial denial via online CRRF
BILLING INFORMATION - MODIFIERS
25 modifier exceptions
• When billing a vaccine and E/M combination, if modifier 25 is
on the E/M service in combination with a vaccine
administration service, there will not be an edit applied. This
decision was made in conjunction when the new NCCI edit
surfaced. There could potentially be an edit however if there
is another service performed besides the E/M and vaccine
admin such as a lesion removal or joint injection, etc.
• Claims for allergy testing that fall into range of 95004-95079
and are billed with an E/M code will not pend for Modifier
25. Allergy claims for other services such as immunotherapy,
shots, injections, etc. that are billed with an E/M code that do
not fall into the category listed above will hit the modifier 25
edit.
CLAIM EDIT
• Geisinger’ s claim edit software edits for correct coding,
Medicare based CCI edits and industry standard Mutually
Exclusive and Incidental edits. These are usually based on CPT
guidelines and Medical/Organizational recommendations.
• It is not a mirror image of CMS CCI. The Health Plan applies
edits similar to that of Medicare in regards to modifier usage.
However, the option is that Medicare assumes proper
modifier usage and audits on the back end.
The Health Plan requires this documentation on the front end.
Modifier usage does not override the edit. The payments are
then made based on the contractual agreement.
CLAIM EDIT
• Modifier 25 notes submission
– Can be submitted initially with a paper claim
– Can be submitted after the initial denial via the online
CRRF process
• Please utilize the Secure Email feature on www.navinet.net
for claim edit denial clarifications or to request a claim edit
rationale.
• Requests for the claim edit rationale must be received by the
Health Plan within 60 day from the date indicated on the
initial Health Plan EOP.
