(Policy 06-003, effective 05/01/2019)

The Empire BlueCross BlueShield HealthPlus (Empire) Modifier 25 reimbursement policy provides the criteria for reimbursement for a significant, separately identifiable evaluation and management (E&M) service performed by the same provider on the same day of the original service or procedure. Effective May 1, 2019, Empire does not allow separate reimbursement for E&Ms performed on the same day as a major surgery (90-day global period).
