ATTENTION REHABILITATION CENTERS, OUTPATIENT
HOSPITAL REHABILITATION AND SCHOOL-BASED HEALTH CENTERS
Effective March 1, 2013, the definition for procedure code(s) 92507 and 92508 are being updated to reflect the
appropriate CPT code definition and remove the 15 minute increment as listed on the Louisiana Medicaid Fee Schedules.
The rates are being updated in accordance with the definition per occurrence/visit. Only one occurrence
may be billed per day. Providers should check with the appropriate health plans for billing instructions
on previous dates of service since implementation of Bayou Health, February 2012.

OUTPATIENT HOSPITAL PROVIDERS: PULSE OXIMETRY CLAIMS
Effective with the March 26, 2013 date of processing, outpatient hospital claims for noninvasive ear or pulse oximetry

as professional claims. Providers can expect that pulse oximetry claims will be considered integral/incidental to other
