Use Modifier CS to Identify Services Subject to Cost Share Waiver

Effective immediately, practices, providers and facilities should append Modifier CS to procedure codes to indicate that a member’s cost share (i.e., copay, deductible or coinsurance) was not collected for services performed during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Use Modifier CS when no cost share was collected for in-person, telemedicine and phone services occurring during the COVID-19 public health emergency.

This applies to Horizon BCBSNJ and Horizon NJ Health plans.
