Cigna Communication Update
Nucleic acid sexually transmitted diseases laboratory panel reimbursement
For claims processed on or after May 18, 2020
As a result of a recent review, Cigna will rebundle Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) codes used to bill for individual tests that comprise
a Nucleic Acid Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD) laboratory panel into a single panel code. Accordingly, the claim will be processed and
reimbursed using the CPT panel code. The Genetic Testing Panels Reimbursement Policy (R28) includes a list of current CPT panel codes.
