Attention: updated physician lab fee schedules for Medicare Advantage products
Effective January 1, 2020, Empire BlueCross BlueShield will update our physician laboratory fee schedule rates to be consistent with existing Commercial lab fees, which is reflective of the enterprise lab fee schedule for New York. This change is applicable to providers who are reimbursed, either in whole or in part, based on the standard Medicare Advantage fee schedule rates.
The actual impact to any particular physician will depend on the codes most frequently billed by that physician.
The complete updated fee schedule will be available on the Availity Portal on the effective date of January 1, 2020.
