Note: CMS revised this article on January 29, 2020, to reflect an updated CR 11501. The update removed the sentence (When furnished to hospital outpatients, these two new biofeedback services will continue to be paid under the OPPS.) from the CR policy section (1. below) about how the two new biofeedback codes are paid when furnished to hospital outpatients. Note that the two new biofeedback codes will be paid under the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule. The CR release date, transmittal number and link to the CR also changed. All other information is unchanged.

CR 11501 updates the list of codes that sometimes or always describe therapy services. The additions, changes, and deletions to the therapy code list reflect those made in the Calendar Year (CY) 2020 Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) and Level II HCPCS. Make sure your billing staffs are aware of these updates.
