Code-editing Notification Search Tool Improved

Humana improved its code-editing notification tool to make searches more effective. Previously, if a search term contained multiple words, the search would return more items than the user may have expected.

The new search function allows the user to enter multiple terms, and it will return only those items that contain all of those words. It also ignores common words like “the,” “and,” “it,” “a” and “an.” The goal is to return the needed information quickly and easily.

Throughout the year, Humana updates its claim payment systems to better align with American Medical Association Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®), Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS), International Classification of Diseases (ICD) code sets and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) guidelines. These changes are posted on the first Friday of each month, and each change will include that item’s implementation date.
