For the Week of September 15, 2014
I have been hearing about a new cardiologist specialty code. What can you tell me about that?
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has established a new physician specialty code for interventional cardiology. CMS also changed the description of specialty code 62 and updated the names associated with specialty codes 88 and 95. Details about this are available in MM8812 at http://www.cms.gov/Outreach-and-Education/Medicare-Learning-Network-MLN/MLNMattersArticles/Downloads/MM8812.pdf.
