COVID-19 and Connect Care #15 - Professional Billing Reversions

We previously posted about Connect Care professional billing changes resulting from Alberta Health policy changes. Changes affected complex modifiers and built-in overhead considerations.

This area is proving volatile. Policy has shifted and changes required for April 1, 2020, are now pushed back to later in the year (October 1, 2020); together with some other changes.

While the addition of "z-codes" (at this moment not financially different from prior codes) is live in Connect Care, clinicians need not worry as their claims will be automatically corrected before submission. It is still wise to update billing personalizations to reflect the Z addition if working in a publically funded facility, as these appear destined to stay.
