Ready to check out April HCPCS updates, more CPT® guidelines, and a new crosswalk? Here’s where to find the latest additions to TCI SuperCoder online coding solutions. (Hint: The left-side menu on your homepage is your friend.)
Q2 HCPCS updates: The Coding menu on the left side of your online coding solution homepage is the home of Upcoming Changes. Check both the HCPCS and HCPCS Modifiers links to see what’s coming April 1, 2018. Important changes include additions for the Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program and a new way to code biosimilar biological products.
Cat. II/III CPT® guidelines: Knowing the official guidelines for CPT® code sections is a major factor in understanding how to apply codes! When you need to refresh your knowledge of Category II and Category III CPT® codes, head to the Coding menu on the left side of your online coding solution homepage. Under CPT®/Guidelines, you’ll find Cat. II and III guidelines along with other CPT® section guidelines.
HCPCS ? ICD-10-CM: Another new addition to the left-side menu is the HCPCS ? ICD-10-CM crosswalk. Click the link to open the tool. You can enter either a HCPCS code to see related ICD-10-CM codes (or an ICD-10-CM code to see related HCPCS codes). Tip: This crosswalk was designed by the TCI team to assist with coding, but remember to use our LCD search when you want to confirm your payer’s rules.
