Category III codes

Alicia Posted Wed 27th of October, 2010 01:17:06 AM

When and who should use Category III CODES, WE FOUND CATEGORY III CODES FOR FACETS AND WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF WE CAN USE THEM AND DO THEY PAY MORE?

cat 111 codes do not have RVUs assigned to them; payment is up to the carrier discretion; per CPT you are supposed to use them if the more appropriately describe the services :)
