2017 CPT Changes for Radiology

Understanding 2017 coding changes is crucial to obtaining accurate reimbursement for radiology services provided. The breast imaging section of CPT was revised ‒ will Medicare process these new codes in 2017? 2018? Other changes in 2017 impact ultrasound, dialysis graft/fistula imaging and interventions, angioplasty radiology services and billing for moderate sedation administration. Radiologists and coders will also need to understand revisions to the NCCI Policy Manual for 2017. We provide information from the CMS Final Rules pertinent to radiology practices including the new modifier for the drug discarding policy.
