2021 - Long Term EEG Monitoring Code Updates
CPC, COC, CCS
Coding for long-term continuous EEG services has undergone significant changes since 2020, because CPT® offers a plethora of guidelines, leading to a substantial number of coding errors and claim document issues
The technical component codes are reported for services provided in a physician office, Independent Diagnostic Testing Facility (IDTF), or for services provided in a patient’s home by a physician office or IDTF.
The TC codes are not reported for hospital inpatient or outpatient studies or for home studies ordered by hospital-based physicians and provided by technologists that are employed by the hospital. The facility fees for all hospital-based studies are included in the hospital diagnosis-related group (DRG) payment for inpatients or the hospital ambulatory payment classification (APC) payment for outpatient or home studies ordered by the outpatient clinic or hospital-based physician.
