Medical Policy Implementation: Prostatic Urethral Lift

Effective July 22, 2015, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey will change the way we consider claims for prostatic urethral lift procedures.

Based on the guidelines of our medical policy, Prostatic Urethral Lift, CPT® codes 52441 or +52442 submitted on claims for services provided on and after July 22, 2015 will be denied as investigational services regardless of the diagnosis (or diagnoses) included on the claim.

Review this revised policy in our online Medical Policy Manual.

Unless Horizon BCBSNJ gives written notice that all or part of the above changes have been cancelled or postponed, the changes will be applied to claims for dates of service on and after July 22, 2015.

CPT® is a registered mark of the American Medical Association.
