CMS Issues 2014 Annual Update to the Part B Therapy Code List


The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently issued Change Request 8482 which updates the Part B therapy code lists for calendar year (CY) 2014 by adding four “Always Therapy” codes, one “Sometimes Therapy” code, and deletes two current codes. The update to the therapy code list reflects those made in the CY 2014 Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System and Current Procedural Terminology, Fourth Edition (HCPCS/CPT-4). Please make sure your billing and coding staff are aware of these changes. A summary of these changes, affecting wound therapy codes and several codes commonly used for speech-language pathology (SLP) services, can be found in the CMS MLN Matters article #MM8482.
