Access our Medical Policy Manual to review this medical policy content.¹


Claims submitted for services provided on and after January 14, 2020 to patients enrolled in Horizon BCBSNJ Medicare Advantage (MA) plans will be processed as follows.

  • Based on the submitted diagnosis code(s), the services represented by CPT® code 90901 may be denied as an experimental/investigational non-covered service.

Unless Horizon BCBSNJ gives written notice that all or part of the above changes have been canceled or postponed, the changes will be applied to claims for dates of service on and after January 14, 2020.
