Take a glimpse at the hundreds of CPT coding updates coming in 2024 to prepare your coding and billing staff for a successful turn of the calendar. You’ll find new codes, as well as code revisions, spread throughout the CPT manual, in addition to important guideline updates.
Also, nearly 50 codes are on the chopping block. All coding updates, outside of a separately announced COVID vaccine consolidation that takes effect Nov. 1, 2023, will be effective Jan. 1, 2024.
Make sure you're staying accurate with an overhaul to the COVID-19 vaccine and administration codes. The AMA announced it is deleting a significant number of codes, replacing them with new codes and striking Appendix Q from the CPT Manual.
The AMA’s May 25 webinar focused on the changes to the E/M code set that went into effect Jan. 1, 2023. But in addition to a detailed review of the new coding guidelines, related technical corrections and four case studies, the co-chairs of the AMA's CPT/RUC Workgroup on E/M gave attendees a glimpse into the future of the E/M code set.
You can assign two data points when a provider orders and interprets a test, and count documents from an appropriate source toward data review, according to a technical correction to the 2023 CPT manual. A second update from the AMA contains a brief preview of revisions that wil hit next year.
Make sure billers, coders, clinicians and compliance staff understand that the substantive portion rule does not apply to CPT split/shared coding guidelines.
