Billing codes are updated each year by the American Medical Association. Please refer to the 2021 manuals for Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) and Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS).
We’re in the process of updating our systems for new 2021 codes. Claims submitted with new codes will be pended. Due to the pandemic, there had been a delay in the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) posting the RVU file and fee schedules. We are working diligently to have the new 2021 codes configured as quickly possible while ensuring accuracy.
Both Medicare and commercial claims containing new codes will be pended and processed as soon as the new 2021 codes are configured. Providers do not need to resubmit claims.
