Venipuncture Not Reimbursed When Billed with Lab Services

Effective May 6, 2019, Highmark will not reimburse venipuncture (blood draws) when billed with another blood or serum lab service on the same date of service, by the same provider, for the same patient. The venipuncture is considered incidental to the lab test and is not eligible for separate reimbursement.
