Update to 'ClaimCheck' Product Editing
McKesson's 'ClaimCheck' product is routinely updated by the McKesson Corporation based on changes made to resources used, such as Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) and Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) coding guidelines, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Physician Fee Schedule database, National Correct Coding Initiative (NCCI) edits, and/or provider specialty society updates. The 'ClaimCheck' product's procedure code edits are guided by these widely accepted industry standards.
This update will affect claims with remittance advice of September 13, 2016 forward. Providers may notice some differences in claims editing. Providers should expect that some claims will continue to deny for the same error, but in some cases claims may now pay or deny for a different reason.

Information Regarding Intranasal Flu Vaccine for 2016-2017
Please note that the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends that the nasal spray flu vaccines should not be used during the 2016-2017 flu season. ACIP continues to recommend annual flu vaccination with either the inactivated influenza vaccine or the recombinant influenza vaccine for everyone 6 months and older.
Louisiana Medicaid, in conjunction with information from the CDC and the Louisiana Office of Public Health Immunization Program advises that only the injectable flu vaccine will be available for VFC and other providers this year. The nasal flu vaccines are non-covered effective immediately. Fee schedules will be updated to reflect this change.
