Product Description

What’s new in Internal Medicine Coding for 2015? Get up to date before you code another item.

CPT® 2015 will include 264 new codes, 134 revised codes, and 143 deleted codes — and it’s up to you to figure out what affects internal medicine. Here’s a hint: You will be seeing some new codes for vaccinations, arthrocentesis, and chronic care management while having to take into account some descriptor changes to old codes.

As with every year, you will be seeing some changes to vaccination codes in CPT® 2015. You will have to add two new vaccine codes to your cache while making note of many changes to the descriptors of old codes. In addition, according to the proposed changes to CPT® codes in 2015, you will be seeing some changes to the descriptors of codes that you would use to report arthrocentesis. You will also have to take into account some new codes being introduced for these procedures when they involve ultrasound guidance. Plus, changes to five CCM codes may make your chronic care management services coding less of a chore.

And if you are already watching out for changes to CPT® codes in 2015, don’t forget to switch your focus to modifiers. You will be seeing some refinement in the form of more precise alternatives to one of the most widely used modifiers — modifier 59.
