Each year the American Medical Association’s CPT-4 code manual is revised to delete codes and/or guidelines, and to add or revise codes to reflect current technologies, techniques, and services. As a service to our radiology clients, APS Medical Billing has summarized those changes to facilitate accurate reporting of the affected services as of January 1, 2017.
A number of new radiology CPT codes have been approved for implementation in 2017. One of the big changes is to Mammography coding and Moderate Sedation. There have also been changes to some angioplasty codes.
The below PDF outlines the changes made. All new codes are highlighted in red and revised/deleted codes are noted.
