CMS Announces 5010 Changes for Non-Specific Procedure Codes

Friday, January 27, 2012

CMS announces that anesthesia codes that include the phrase “not otherwise specified” in their code descriptors (procedure codes 00100 through 01996) do not meet the criteria of a non-specified procedure code and do not require a description to be supplied in the SV101-7/SV202-7 data elements. 

Anesthesia procedure code 01999, “Unlisted anesthesia procedure(s)” meets the requirements of a non-specified code and continues to require additional information to be supplied in the SV101-7 data element. 

A full listing of Medicare Fee-for-Service (FFS) Not Otherwise Classified (NOC) codes are available here.
