The New HCPCS Lab Codes are released which is Effective from July 1, 2021. These new codes are contractor-priced (where applicable) until they are nationally priced and undergo the CLFS annual payment determination process.
The MACs will only price PLA codes for laboratories within their jurisdiction. and Type of Service (TOS) for all the codes should be "5".
0248U - Oncology (brain), spheroid cell culture in a 3D microenvironment, 12 drug panel, tumor-response prediction for each drug.
0249U - Oncology (breast), semiquantitative analysis of 32 phosphoproteins and protein analytes, includes laser capture microdissection, with algorithmic analysis and interpretative report.
0250U - Oncology (solid organ neoplasm), targeted genomic sequence DNA analysis of 505 genes, interrogation for somatic alterations (SNVs [single nucleotide variant], small insertions and deletions, one amplification, and four translocations), microsatellite instability and tumor-mutation burden.
0251U - Hepcidin-25, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), serum or plasma.
0252U - Fetal aneuploidy short tandem–repeat comparative analysis, fetal DNA from products of conception, reported as normal (euploidy), monosomy, trisomy, or partial deletion/duplications, mosaicism, and segmental aneuploidy.
0253U - Reproductive medicine (endometrial receptivity analysis), RNA gene expression profile, 238 genes by nextgeneration sequencing, endometrial tissue, predictive algorithm reported as endometrial window of implantation (eg, pre-receptive, receptive, post-receptive).
0254U - Reproductive medicine (preimplantation genetic assessment), analysis of 24 chromosomes using embryonic DNA genomic sequence analysis for aneuploidy, and a mitochondrial DNA score in euploid embryos, results reported as normal (euploidy), monosomy, trisomy, or partial deletion/duplications, mosaicism, and segmental aneuploidy, per embryo tested.
G0327 - Colorectal cancer screening; blood-based biomarker.
