Radiology Question for the Week of February 13, 2017

Question:

Can CPT code 77063 be reported with 77067?

Answer:

The answer to this can be found in the January 2017 version of the NCCI Policy Manual for Medicare Services, which states the following:

15. CPT code 77063 is an add-on code describing screening digital tomosynthesis for mammography. Since this procedure requires performance of a screening mammography producing direct digital images (HCPCS code G0202), CPT code 77063 may be reported with HCPCS code G0202. However, CPT code 77063 should not be reported with CPT code 77067 which describes screening mammography using radiography.
