District of Columbia Reimbursement Policies

We want to assist physicians, facilities and other providers in accurate claims submissions and to outline the basis for reimbursement if the service is covered by a member’s Amerigroup District of Columbia, Inc. benefit plan. Keep in mind that determination of coverage under a member’s benefit plan does not necessarily ensure reimbursement. These policies may be superseded by state, federal or CMS requirements. Providers and facilities are required to use industry standard codes for claim submissions. Services should be billed with CPT codes, HCPCS codes and/or revenue codes. The billed code(s) should be fully supported in the medical record and/or office notes. Industry practices are constantly changing and Amerigroup reserves the right to review and revise its policies periodically.
