CPT Changes - New CPT Codes '2022

Glimpses of CPT Codes Updates - Effective from January 1st 2022 There are more than 400 codes are changes in 2022 from AMA. Total number codes are changed 405 and including of followings, New Codes -  249  Revised Codes - 93  Deleted Codes - 63 More than 40% of the editorial changes are tried to new technology services described in Category III CPT codes and the continued expansion of the proprietary laboratory analyses section of the CPT code set. Five new CPT codes are created for therapeutic remote monitoring codes 98975, 98976, 98977, 98980 and 98981 to increasingly important avenue of patient care especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Five new CPT codes are created for complex care management codes 99424, 99425, 99426, 99427 and 99437 a nd there are some changes in chronic care management CPT codes as well. Six new CPT codes are created for Cardiac Catheterization codes 93593, 93594, 93595, 93596, 93597 and 93598 for congenital heart defects. Also, there are some changes in ele

Telehealth Update Medicare - 2022

The listed CPT codes are covered in telehealth and changes are effective from dated on June 16, 2022 Medicare telehealth services require that the services occur over real-time audio and visual interactive telecommunications. For purposes of diagnosis, evaluation, or treatment of mental health disorders. If the patient doesn’t have the technical capacity or the availability of real-time audio and visual interactive telecommunications, or they don’t consent to the use of real-time video technology, we allow audio-only communication for telehealth mental health services to established patients located in their homes. After the PHE ends, Telehealth Mental Health services may include new or established patients so long as an in-person, face-to-face, non-telehealth service takes place within 6 months of the telehealth mental health services. This means that all telehealth mental health patients should have had a first in-person visit no later than 6 months after the PHE. After the PHE and a

Annual Preventive and Wellness Visit Service

Preventive Service Codes The annual preventive exam is a periodic, comprehensive preventive medicine evaluation (or reevaluation) and management of the patient. The CPT Code selection is based on whether the patient is receiving an initial visit -"New Patient" or a periodic - "Established Patient" preventive service, as well as the patient’s age. Initial Visits - 99381, 99382, 99383, 99384, 99385, 99386, 99387 Subsequent Visits - 99391, 99392, 99393, 99394, 99395, 99396, 99397 The Medicare insurance would be covered by "G" codes instead of the above codes. The details below, Welcome to Medicare - G0402 (Within the one year from the patient enrolled in Medicare) Initial Annual Wellness Visit - G0438 (After the 1st year of enrollment) Subsequent Annual Wellness Visit - G0439 Initial Visits Initial comprehensive preventive medicine evaluation and management of an individual including an" age and gender appropriate history, examination, counseling/anticip
