On October 31, 2014 the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released the 2015 Medicare Final Rules for Hospitals, Physicians, and Freestanding Centers. An overview of the rules and the impact these rules may have on your TomoTherapy® practices are as follows:
Hospital Outpatient Department
New Delivery, Imaging, and Tracking Codes
CMS has implemented newly created American Medical Association (AMA) Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) billing codes for IMRT, 3D CRT, teletherapy isodose planning, imaging and intra-fraction tracking . While these codes will be implemented in the hospital outpatient department in 2015, changes in payment over 2014 are dependent on which components have been bundled, in which Ambulatory Payment Classification (APC) CMS has placed them, and whether the component is technical or professional. The online HTML Tidy code editor tool helps you organize your code easily in your browser without download or registration. It is absolutely free!
