Serum IgG Allergy Testing Medical Policy Updated


After a review of our Serum IgG Allergy Testing Medical Policy, Harvard Pilgrim determined that while the policy included codes for initial IgG allergen testing for venom immunotherapy, some covered codes for subsequent testing were inadvertently excluded when the policy was updated to include ICD-10 coding. Harvard Pilgrim has updated the policy to include the appropriate coding.  Additionally, we will perform a recycle of claims with dates of service beginning Oct. 1, 2015 to ensure that appropriate reimbursement is provided for subsequent venom immunotherapy testing. For more information, please refer to the updated Serum IgG Allergy Testing Medical Policy.
