Dear Providers,

 

Last week QM sent out the attached memo and other documents for you to review with your staff and doctors regarding new CPT Code Changes that will be effective January 1, 2013.  I am attaching this memo again, along with another CPT Coding PowerPoint for your review.  Please note a couple other announcements.

 

1)    There will be three Webinar Seminars (choose one) to go over the information in the attached CPT Coding presentation.  Please be sure to review this material prior so that you are familiar with the content and prepared with any questions.  The first Webinar is scheduled for Friday, Jan. 4, 2013, from 9:00 am to 11:00 am.  The second Webinar is Monday, Jan. 7, 2013, from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm.  The third Webinar is Thursday, Jan. 10, 2013, from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.  Please expect an email soon.

2)    On Jan. 1, 2013, SC 22 MEDS – Pharmacological Mgmt may no longer be used for recording medication services.  Your doctors will need to use the new Medication Service Codes.  Please monitor your doctors closely to ensure they are not entering SC22 on or after January 1, 2013.  Any SC22 services that are entered on or after January 1, 2013, will have to be deleted and re-entered under the correct service codes.  The other MEDS service codes remain unchanged.

3)    Please see attached the five (5) New MEDS Service Codes to be used in Anasazi.  Please make sure this information gets into the hands of your doctors.

4)    As of January 1, 2013, you are expected to follow the documentation standards for the selection of these new service codes.

5)    Please direct any questions you have to QIMatters.hhsa@sdcounty.ca.gov.

 

Thank you for your attention to this implementation.
