2017 Pathology & Laboratory CPT Updates

Each year the CPT code manual is updated to delete codes and/or guidelines, and to add or revise codes to reflect current technologies, techniques, and services. As a service to our clients, APS Medical Billing has summarized those changes to facilitate accurate reporting of the affected services as of January 1, 2017. Again, the Molecular Pathology Tier 1 and Tier 2 subsections include a number of additions and deletions.  In addition, changes in the Presumptive Drug Class Screening subsection, the Genomic Sequencing Procedure and Other Molecular Multianalyte Assays, the Multianalyte Assays with Algorithmic Analyses, Chemistry, and a new code was added to the Microbiology. 
 
The below PDF document outlines the changes made to these sections.  All new codes are highlighted in red and revised/deleted codes are noted.
