Many Part B Therapy Code Edits Removed

As part of a recent COVID-19 related update to National Correct Coding Initiative (CCI) files, CMS announced the removal of many problematic claim coding edits related to Medicare Part B PT, OT, and SLP services. The changes are effective for dates of service beginning April 1, 2020. Medicaid and most private insurance also follow the CCI edit policies. Provider billing staff should review the updated files available on the PTP Coding Edit webpage and the Quarterly PTP and MUE Version Update Changes webpage.
