While only a few of the 225 new codes, 93 revised codes, and 75 deleted codes in Current Procedural Terminology[i] (CPT)® for 2023 will impact radiology practices, it’s essential to know what they are and adjust your practice systems accordingly.
Coding Changes That Will Impact Radiology Practices In 2023 on January 23, 2023
Categories: radiology coding, interventional radiology, IR coding, CPT codes, diagnostic radiology, evaluation and management
A radiology practice that includes interventional procedures has to be up to date on the use of documentation and coding techniques for Evaluation and Management (E&M) services. Since these CPT®[i] codes in the 99xxx range are less commonly utilized in many radiology practices, identifying circumstances where E&M services are billable, and then properly documenting and coding for them, will require a collaborative effort between interventional radiologists (IR) and their coding team.
