The medical policies listed below reflect medical criteria used/developed by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas. These medical policies do not guarantee benefits under BCBSKS member contracts.
A BCBSKS medical policy may apply to professional providers, to institutional providers or to both. That’s why the medical policy format shows separate effective dates for professional and institutional providers. It’s also why if you compare the list of professional medical policies to the list for institutional providers there could be a difference.
BCBSKS only displays the most current version of a medical policy. When updated policies become effective, prior versions are removed from this Web site.
These are the most recent policy updates.
