    Just wanted to let everyone know, I finally got my IV Glutathione covered by BC/BS. I have PPO. My PCP is a PPO provider and he required me to pay up front, saying that BC/BS would not cover it. So I did about 9 or 10 treatments, paying $45 for each IV. That was in 2005. Well, I finally got around to submitting these, and of course, they were coded wrong, and were rejected. I kept at it, going back to Dr. to recode and FINALLY, they were covered, at 100%.

    I will let my Dr. office know exactly how they were coded so they can offer this service in network.

    It was coded:

    Dx: Fibromyalgia
    Procedure: Glutathione IV , less than 45 minutes

    pitatoo, if you have a PPO policy, they should be administered the same. If not PPO, it may or may not, as BC/BS has SOOOO many plans.
