AHA Comments on Medicare Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System and CY 2011 Payment Rates

December 22, 2010

The AHA recommends that in CY 2011, CMS establish two new APCs into which CPT codes 74176, 74177 and 74178 would be placed, depending on whether or not contrast is used in the performance of the service. We further recommend that the payment amount for each of the APCs be set at the same amount as CMS will pay for composite APCs 8005 and 8006. Alternatively, CMS could change the claims payment system logic for assigning CPT codes to composite APCs to ensure that if one of these new combination CPT codes is billed by a hospital outpatient department, the payment would be assigned to either composite APC 8005 or 8006, depending on whether contrast was used.
