CMS Proposal to Bundle Imaging Guidance with Epidural Injection Codes

Wednesday, July 16, 2014  
After implementing severe payment cuts to the epidural codes in year 2014, CMS acknowledges receiving a significant number of comment letters. After reviewing the issue in more detail, CMS proposes in the current rule that imaging guidance should be included in CPT codes 62310, 62311, 62318, and 62319 and is referring the codes as potentially misvalued, and to be reviewed again by the Relative Value Update Committee (RUC). In the meantime, in the year 2015 CMS plans to base payment for these codes on the 2013 work RVUs and direct practice expense inputs.
