Injectable Medication Fee Schedule Update for Q2 2018
On January 31, 2018, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey announced changes to our fee schedule for injectable medications that will be implemented on May 1, 2018.
Effective May 17, 2018, the additional changes to injectable medication fee amounts that are identified in the table below will be implemented.
|Code||Dose||Final Rate||Prior Rate|
We update our injectable medication fee schedule each quarter, usually reflecting industry-wide changes to the Average Sales Price (ASP) or the Average Wholesale Price (AWP) of an injectable medication. The listed rates do not reflect industry-wide changes in the ASP/AWP of these medications.
Claims processed on and after May 17, 2018 that include these injectable medications will be reimbursed based on our revised fee schedule information. Horizon BCBSNJ reserves the right to adjust claims for services provided on and after May 17, 2018 that are not reimbursed according to this updated information.
ASP information for Medicare Part B drugs is posted by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services on the first day of the quarter. AWP information, based on data obtained from manufacturers, distributors and other suppliers, is available from a variety of commercial sources.
