Revised to include the updated document name
Changes impact UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Maryland members
UnitedHealthcare recently performed an analysis of our emergency department claims review process and expanded our list of emergency room diagnoses that do not require review. The updated list is effective for claims with dates of service beginning Dec. 1, 2022.
Claims for emergency services with primary ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes on the updated list will be paid for covered members without further documentation.
