The CR revision removed HCPCS codes A9601 and J0739 from Table 3 of the CR and reduced the number of new codes from 16 to 14 in Section 3a, as shown in dark red font on page 2. CMS also revised the CR release date, transmittal number, and the CR web address. All other information is the same.

CR 12773 tells you about:

  • A new CPT Category III Code effective July 1, 2022
  • Newly established HCPCS codes for drugs, biologicals, and radiopharmaceuticals effective July 1, 2022
  • New skin substitute products and low-cost/high-cost group assignment effective July 1, 2022
