CMS Makes a Significant Change to HCPCS Applications for 2012

20 September 2010

Health Alert

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has issued a document addressing applications for new or revised Level II Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) codes effective 1 January 2012 (www.cms.gov/MedHCPCSGenInfo/Downloads/2012HCPCSApplication.pdf). Level II HCPCS codes are used for billing a variety of items and services, including drugs, biologicals, and durable medical equipment. Although the CMS document is similar in most respects to previous code application documents, there are a few significant changes that should be noted to avoid having the application deferred until the 2013 cycle.
