The American Health Information Management Association has officially responded to proposed ICD-10-CM/PCS codes that were presented at the ICD-10 Coordination and Maintenance Committee meeting held in March by CMS.
The FY 2017 IPPS proposed rule addresses MS-DRG classifications and relative weights pertaining to the categories of other cardiothoracic procedures without MCC, and injuries, poisonings and toxic effects of drugs.
Q: Are there any new HCPCS codes for recently released biosimilar products on the horizon? Our physicians and pharmacists are being contacted by the manufacturer about purchasing and using them, but we want to be sure we can report them appropriately.
CMS recently released its seventh maintenance update for National Coverage Determinations to incorporate ICD-10 and other coding updates, which may require providers to contact Medicare Administrative Contractors regarding previously submitted claims.
