MBCHP allowable Diagnosis Codes

Note: QNXT may deny your claim if you use a Diagnosis Code NOT listed.

Use of Diagnosis Code Z00.00/Z00.01 alone may cause your claim to DENY. You must use another MBCHP Diagnosis Code in addition to Z00.00/Z00.01 so we can tell that a screening service covered by MBCHP was performed during the office visit being billed. MBCHP can only reimburse for an office visit where at least one breast or cervical cancer screening service was performed during the visit. Office visit must include a Breast/Cervical Risk Assessment, and a Clinical Breast Exam (CBE), or Pelvic Exem, or Pap Test for claim to be paid.

To help our service locations in the switch from ICD-9 to ICD-10 Diagnosis Codes, below are two PDF documents that map MBCHP ICD-9 codes to their ICD-10 equivalents. The first is sorted by the ICD-9 column numerically and the second is sorted by ICD-10 column numerically. These documents should help you in cross referencing covered MBCHP diagnosis codes from ICD-9 to ICD-10. If you have any questions, please contact MBCHP.

MBCHP Reimbursement Rate

MBCHP allowable Revenue Codes (UB-04)

Note: QNXT may deny your claim if you use a Revenue Code NOT listed on the Revenue Code list.


Special Instructions for RHC/FQHC billing MBCHP:

  1. RHC/FQHC must bill using Revenue Code 0960 OR 0521 along with the appropriate CPT E/M code for the office visit. Billed charges MUST be on the line with the CPT E/M code in order for the claim to pay the appropriate rate. Zero charges on the CPT E/M code claim line will result in that claim line paying $0.
  2. Billing a T1015 code on MBCHP claims will cause that claim line to deny as MBCHP does not use T1015. T1015 is only used for MaineCare billing.
