CGS-MolDX Alert: AMA CPT 2015 Coding Changes (CM00001)

Effective January 1, 2015, MolDX will include new CPT codes 81246, 81288, 81313, 81410-81471, 81519, 0006M, 0007M, and 0008M. Many of the new code descriptions more accurately match tests reported in 2014 with Not Otherwise Classified (NOC) CPT code 81479. Although the MolDX Team has compared the application information for all tests submitted with CPT code 81479 to the new code descriptions, we want to confirm these findings with the respective labs.

To ensure a smooth transition, labs should compare all tests currently reported with an NOC code to the new code descriptions for possible changes. If you believe you perform a test that should be reported with a new 2015 code, please email the MolDX team at  MolDX@Palmettogba.com with the following information:

  • Test ID
  • 2014 CPT code to report test
  • 2015 CPT code that more accurately reports your test

The MolDX team will validate the CPT code used to report the test and contact labs regarding disparities.  During your review, please verify your DEX application information to ensure your test information used to map the appropriate CPT code is accurate.
