Payment Policy Update: Viral Hepatitis Serology


Harvard Pilgrim has updated the list of covered clinical indications for viral hepatitis serology, and, effective for dates of service beginning January 1, 2014, we will reimburse for 42 previously uncovered indications.

Harvard Pilgrim reimburses contracted providers for viral hepatitis serology testing consistent with Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) policies, which are based on Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines.

For complete information on viral hepatitis serology testing, including a full list of covered ICD-9 diagnosis codes, see the updated Viral Hepatitis Serology Testing Payment Policy.
