CPT Coding Updates for 2024

Presented by Jill Young, CPC, CEDC, CIMD, Young Medical Consulting

On Tuesday, December 19, 2023, from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm, CPT Coding Updates for 2024 will cover the annual update to the CPT code set, which created 349 editorial changes, including 230 additions, 49 deletions and 70 revisions.

Changes for 2024 include the consolidation of over 50 previous codes that streamline the reporting of immunizations for COVID-19.

Five new CPT codes have been created to report product specific Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) immunization (90380, 90381, 90683, 90679, and 90678) for better tracking, reporting and analysis that supports data-driven planning and allocation.

There are also revisions to the CPT 2024 code set that clarify the reporting of evaluation and management (E/M) services.  The revisions include:

  • Removal of time ranges from office or other outpatient visit codes (99202-99205, 99212-99215) and aligned the format with other E/M codes.
  • A definition to determine the “substantive portion” of a split/shared E/M visit in which a physician and a non-physician practitioner work jointly to furnish all the work related to the visit.
  • Instructions for reporting hospital inpatient or observation care services and admission and discharge services for the use of codes 99234-99235 when the patient stay crosses over two calendar dates.
