Let our radiology coding expert, Jeff Majchrzak, guide you through the numerous CPT®/HCPCS code changes for radiology in 2019, while untangling the coding complexities for FNA biopsies, CVA/PICC line procedures and much more. You'll code more accurately and confidently, protecting your facility from noncompliant billing.

A REVIEW OF KEY CHANGES FOR 2019:

  • Many new, deleted and revised CPT/HCPCS codes specific to radiology services, including:
    • Breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
    • Fine needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy
    • Central venous access (CVA)
    • Genitourinary (GU) studies
    • MRI and ultrasound elastography
    • Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS)
    • AND OTHERS
  • Updates to Medicare payment policies for 2019, covering both OPPS and MPFS
