Coding Alert – New Category III Codes Not Covered

The release of the 2017 CPT codes by the American Medical Association included numerous new Category III temporary codes for reporting emerging technology services and procedures.

Typically these codes would require a prior authorization under the Experimental / Investigational codes section for Unity and Gundersen Health plan members.  

Please note that these new Category III codes are not a covered benefit, even when a prior authorization is requested.    

The claims submitted with the codes in this linked list will be denied.  

If you have questions, please contact your Provider Coordinator.
