This section of the Medical Policy Reference Manual pertains to administrative policies.
These are policies that do not pertain to medical necessity decisions, but rather decisions pertaining to administrative procedure, coverage, recommended claims processing, or cost effectiveness.
Our medical policies are designed for informational purposes only and are not an authorization, or an explanation of benefits, or a contract. Receipt of benefits is subject to satisfaction of all terms and conditions of the coverage. Medical technology is constantly changing, and we reserve the right to review and update our policies periodically.
