Once in a Lifetime Procedures and ModifiersUse SHIFT+ENTER to open the menu (new window).

Idaho Medicaid will reimburse certain procedures only once during a patient’s lifetime. Once in a Lifetime Procedures are not limited to a single CPT code, but may be represented by Code Families, which are a group of CPT codes that describe the same or similar type of service. For example, there are four separate appendectomy CPT codes that can be used based upon the particular circumstance, to report the removal of the appendix. Under this policy, Medicaid provides reimbursement for only one procedure from a designated Code Family during a patient’s lifetime.


When any health care professional reports a code from the Once in a Lifetime Procedures, that code or any code from the same Code Family will be reimbursed only once during a patient’s lifetime.


Additional information on this policy will be published in the May edition of the MedicAide newsletter.
