The latest AHA Coding Clinic® for HCPCS offers a roundup of the many HCPCS Level II and CPT® codes that have been added this year for SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 diagnostic testing and specimen collection. You also can see listings of HCPCS Level II changes that will be effective July 1, 2020. While HCPCS Coding Clinic® focuses on outpatient facility reporting, the upcoming 2021 office visit evaluation and management (E/M) coding changes are so significant, that the newsletter also covers these changes to assist facilities making internal guidelines for hospital-based clinic E/M reporting. This jam-packed issue even has a helpful 2019/2020 comparison of intermediate and complex repair definitions in CPT® guidelines.
