Mohs Micrographic Surgery Medical Policy Update

Harvard Pilgrim maintains a commercial policy for the medical management of Mohs micrographic surgery, which is a specialized surgical technique for the thorough removal of complex and ill-defined skin cancers.

The policy outlines the specific criteria that must be met for Mohs micrographic surgery to be covered for certain indications, and effective March 1, 2022, the procedure will only be considered reasonable and medically necessary when performed by a dermatologist certified by the American College of Mohs Surgery.

For complete information, please refer to the updated Mohs Micrographic Surgery Medical Policy.
