CareOregon to cover circumcisions, effective August 15, 2016.

August 15, 2016

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that parents should decide whether circumcision is in the best interest of their male child by weighing medical information in the context of their own belief systems. In an effort to support this decision, CareOregon will cover circumcisions for members 60 days old and younger. Claims with dates of service August 15, 2016 and later with CPT codes 54150, 54160, or 54161 will not require an authorization when performed in an outpatient setting.
