HCPCS Code Update – 2010

The following list identifies changes to level II Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) codes for 2010.

Added Codes/Added Modifiers: New codes and modifiers are effective for dates of service on or after January 1, 2010.

Discontinued Codes/Deleted Modifiers: Codes or modifiers that are discontinued/deleted will continue to be valid for claims with dates of service on or before December 31, 2009, regardless of the date of claim submission. If there is a direct crosswalk for a discontinued/deleted code or modifier, it is listed in the table. The crosswalked codes are also “added” codes effective for dates of service on or after January 1, 2010.

There is no grace period that would allow submission of the discontinued code for dates of service in 2010.

Narrative Changes/Revised Modifiers: A description change for an existing code or modifier is effective for dates of service on or after January 1, 2010.
