16/08/2017 N/A N/A Transforaminal epidural (cervical) New Code Submitted Improves coding structure and adds claritysee previous...
16/08/2017 N/A N/A Transforaminal epidural (thoracic) New Code Submitted
16/08/2017 N/A N/A Transforminal epidural (caudal) New Code Submitted See previous..
16/08/2017 N/A N/A Transforminal epidural - lumbar New Code Submitted Improves coding structure and adds claritysee 3914
16/08/2017 A5290 Transforaminal epidural N/A Inactivate Submitted Improves coding structure and adds clarityWe feel that A5290 “Transforminal epidural” should be separated out into 4 codes in the same way that the A5200/10/11/20 codes for epidural injections are split into areas of the spine: lumbar caudal thoracic and cervical. This clarifies which area of the spine is being treated.
14/08/2017 S5240 N/A N/A Reinstatement Submitted Code still requiredSince the inactivation of this code (plus S5210) confusion has been caused at many of our hospitals. This has been looked into and guidance given to those using it incorrectly i.e. for trigger point injections etc. However we have hospitals wanting to assign this code for legitimate procedures such as steroid injections into scars and steroid injections for alopecia.

14/08/2017 N/A N/A Mole Mapping New Code Submitted Brand new procedure/test
14/08/2017 Q1800 Hysteroscopy (including biopsy, dilatation, +/- cauterisation, curettage and resection of polyp(s) +/- Mirena coil insertion) N/A Coding Principles Submitted Now that +/- cauterisation is included in the narrative for Q1800, we feel there is overlap and so these codes should not be billed together.
07/08/2017 N/A N/A 18 Gene Panel Glycogon Storage New Code Submitted Brand new procedure/testRequest from Bupa
07/08/2017 N/A N/A O(6)-Methylguanine-DNA Methyltransferase (MGMT) gene New Code Submitted Brand new procedure/test

02/08/2017 S1500 Biopsy of skin or subcutaneous tissue Biopsy of skin, suspicious skin lesion or subcutaneous tissue Narrative Change Submitted Improves coding structure and adds clarityWe feel this adds clarity to when this code should be used.
02/08/2017 N/A N/A Excision biopsy of suspicious skin lesion including margins – trunk and limbs New Code Submitted Improves coding structure and adds clarityPlease see request 3890
02/08/2017 N/A N/A Excision biopsy of suspicious skin lesion including margins – head and neck New Code Submitted Improves coding structure and adds clarityWe feel that the current CCSD coding for excision and biopsy of skin lesions does not cover what is carried out in clinical practice. It is our understanding that it is current practice in some cases to carry out a wide excision of a suspicious lesion without doing a biopsy first. This tissue is then sent for biopsy. This is a wider excision than would be carried out for a benign lesion. However codes for excision of malignant lesions are not appropriate for use in this scenario as the lesion has not been biopsied and so malignancy has not been confirmed.
24/07/2017 N/A N/A Thermography New Code Submitted Brand new procedure/testBrand new procedure/test
21/07/2017 B3012 Mastectomy and immediate reconstruction of breast using expandable prosthesis N/A Coding Principles Submitted B3014 is included in the narrative of B3012.
20/07/2017 N/A N/A Fat Plug Myringoplasty New Code Submitted Improves coding structure and adds clarity Our CMO has sought advice and understands that the fat plug procedure is a considerably less complex and less time consuming procedure than a standard myringoplasty.. He therefore feels it should have a separate code.
19/07/2017 CD029 Full transthoracic echocardiogram N/A Coding Principles Submitted We haven't added any unbundling combinations for this should they copy previous codes?
