1 What You Need to Know About The Affordable Care Act: Preventive Services 2015 Edition Published by Provider Relations and Education Your Partners in Outstanding Quality, Satisfaction and Service Revision: October 2015

2 This document provides a detailed outline of the services approved as preventive under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) for non-grandfathered plans. What the Law Requires The ACA, or Health Care Reform law, requires non-grandfathered plans to cover certain preventive care services at no cost sharing when members use in-network providers. The United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) A and B recommendations describe these recommended preventive services. We based immunization guidelines on those from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) guidelines, including the American Academy of Bright Futures recommendations. These are independent organizations that provide health information on behalf of BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina and BlueChoice HealthPlan. Who Does It Impact The preventive services provisions of the law apply to non-grandfathered health plans. These include both individual health plans and employer-sponsored (group) health plans. A non-grandfathered plan is one that took effect after the government enacted the law on March 23, A grandfathered health plan is one that was in effect before this date. A plan remains grandfathered as long as it does not significantly reduce benefits or increase out-of-pocket spending above what it was when the government enacted the new law. When Does It Take Effect The preventive services provision took effect for non-grandfathered plans for plan years on or after September 23, Coverage for additional women s preventive services took effect for plan years on or after August 1, As services are added or updated, health plans must begin to provide coverage consistent with the recommendation. They must take effect in the first plan or policy year that begins on or after one year after the recommendation went into effect. 2

3 Providing Services and Billing There may be times when a patient who receives recommended preventive care still must pay an out-of-pocket amount for the associated office visit. For instance, how you bill and code the preventive service either separately from the office visit or with the office visit can dictate whether there is a patient liability or not. The primary purpose of the office visit will also determine if there will be an out-of-pocket amount associated with the care. If you bill the preventive service separately from the office visit, we may require the patient to pay the usual cost-sharing (deductible, coinsurance or copayment) amount for the office visit but not the recommended preventive service. This may occur regardless of the primary purpose for the office visit. If you include the recommended preventive care service with the office visit, then the primary purpose of the office visit must be preventive in nature. If the primary purpose of the office visit is to get the recommended preventive care service, the patient does not have to pay for the office visit or preventive care service. For example, if a child receives a wellchild exam and immunizations and the primary purpose of the visit was preventive care, the patient will not have any liability for the immunizations or exam. If the primary purpose of the office visit is for something other than the recommended preventive care service, you may charge the patient the usual cost-sharing amount (deductible, copayment or coinsurance) for the office visit. For example, if a child receives an exam for a complaint (sore throat, cough, etc.) and also receives immunizations, there may be an out-of-pocket expense for the exam but not the immunizations. If you provide services that aren t included in this guide, be sure to bill the services with a diagnosis that s appropriate for the exam or service. Otherwise, we may not cover the services. Services are typically included as part of a normal wellness visit. Use the appropriate office visit code. We consider evaluation and management codes to be preventive. Codes , when used to designate a preventive service, must have the applicable wellness or preventive diagnosis code as the primary reason for the visit. When the primary purpose of the service is the delivery of an evidence-based service in accordance with a USPSTF A or B rating in effect and other preventive services identified in preventive services mandates (legislative or regulatory), you can bill the service with modifier -33. Please note use of the 33 modifier with specific surgical codes will help identify the procedure as preventive. For More Information This document provides an overview of these services. You should also visit the appropriate websites (listed throughout this document) for more details. You can also visit for more information.
