The application was accepted for three Category I CPT codes that include screening and diagnostic breast tomosynthesis, according to Hologic.
The action is a preliminary step, and codes are not assigned until just before the publication of the CPT Professional Edition 2015, the company said. Medicare payment rates for the proposed breast tomosynthesis codes will not be posted until the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issues its final Medicare Physician Fee Schedule in November. CPT codes and rates are scheduled for implementation on January 1, 2015.
