15/01/2019 3015G N/A Myriad Prolaris New Code Submitted Improves coding structure and adds clarityThe current code for Myriad Prolaris is 000T but request this be changed to a code ending in the suffix G in line with other published genetic tests.
14/01/2019 N/A N/A Circulating tumour DNA profile for cancer of unknown primary (Guardant 360) New Code Submitted Brand new procedure/test
14/01/2019 N/A N/A Circulating tumour DNA profile for colo-rectal cancer (Guardant 360) New Code Submitted Brand new procedure/testBrand new procedure/test
14/01/2019 N/A N/A Circulating tumour DNA profile for upper gastro-intestinal cancer (Guardant 360) New Code Submitted Brand new procedure/testBrand new procedure/test
11/01/2019 N/A N/A Circulating tumour DNA profile for breast cancer (Guardant 360) New Code Submitted Brand new procedure/testBrand new procedure/test
02/01/2019 IM124 N/A Electroretinogram & Pattern electroretinogram New Code Submitted No code listed for this test
28/12/2018 G2332 Laparoscopic Insertion of magnetic band for gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (LINX) N/A Coding Principles Submitted There are no coding principles in place for this code, so we suggest mirroring the ones agreed for G2331 " Laparoscopic repair of hiatus hernia with anti-reflux procedure (e.g. fundoplication)".
21/12/2018 G2332 Laparoscopic Insertion of magnetic band for gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (LINX) Laparoscopic Insertion of magnetic band for gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (LINX) +/- repair of hiatus hernia Narrative Change Submitted To align current codes and consistencyRepair of a hiatus hernia is often combined with an anti reflux procedure as in G2331 “Laparoscopic repair of hiatus hernia with anti-reflux procedure (e.g. fundoplication)” so we thought it made sense to include this in the narrative for the LINX procedure.
20/12/2018 H2350 Endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) of colorectal tumour Endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) Narrative Change Submitted Improves coding structure and adds clarityThis change is submitted on behalf of Prof Julian Teare head of Endoscopy at Royal Marsden and London Clinic. Prof Teare is able to join the CCSD call in order to answer any questions about the submission. There are two types of EMR: 1 – Done as part of a Gastroscopy (OGD) to remove the lining of the oesophagus - see https://tinyurl.com/GastroscopyEMR 2 – Done as part of a Colonoscopy to raise large/flat polyps in order that they can be fully removed – where a colonoscopy with snare loop biopsy (H2003) risks not removing the whole polyp - see https://tinyurl.com/ColonoscopyEMR The current narrative excludes the procedure to remove the lining of the oesophagus and does not reflect its true use to remove polyps (rather than tumours) in colonoscopy. By changing the narrative simply to “Endoscopy Mucosal Resection (EMR)” the code can be used whenever the surgical technique of EMR is applied rather than being specific to the type of endoscopy / specimen removal.
20/12/2018 W5830 Robotic assisted total knee replacement N/A Coding Principles Submitted As agreed at last meeting to mirror W4210
18/12/2018 C7520 Lens implant/exchange N/A Coding Principles Submitted The removal of a previous lens would be included within the exchange of lens in the main code C7520.
07/12/2018 W7761 Repair of hip labral tear N/A Coding Principles Submitted
06/12/2018 J5612 Robotic-assisted pancreatoduodenectomy and excision of surrounding tissue (Whipple's procedure) N/A Coding Principles Submitted To mirror the coding principles already in place for J5610 "Pancreatoduodenectomy and excision of surrounding tissue (Whipple's procedure)"
06/12/2018 J5611 Laparoscopic pancreatoduodenectomy and excision of surrounding tissue (Whipple's procedure) N/A Coding Principles Submitted To mirror the coding principles already in place for J5610 "Pancreatoduodenectomy and excision of surrounding tissue (Whipple's procedure)"
27/11/2018 M7071 Transurethral water jet ablation for lower urinary tract symptoms caused by benign prostatic hyperplasia N/A Coding Principles Submitted To mirror the ones proposed for M7070 "Transurethral water vapour ablation....."
27/11/2018 M7070 Transurethral water vapour ablation for lower urinary tract symptoms caused by benign prostatic hyperplasia N/A Coding Principles Submitted My suggestions for unacceptable codes with new code M7070 as I requested it. Please feel free to add any I might have missed.
27/11/2018 XR160 Percutaneous image guided fine needle aspiration (FNA) Percutaneous image guided fine needle aspiration(s) (FNA) - Unilateral Narrative Change Submitted Improves coding structure and adds clarityAs requested at recent working group meeting
27/11/2018 N/A N/A OGD AND FLEIBLE SIGMOIDOSCOPY New Code Submitted Improves coding structure and adds clarityCurrently there is not a code for these two procedures when carried out on one patient.
22/11/2018 N/A N/A Transperineal biopsy of prostate using transrectal ultrasound guidance and MRI fusion New Code Submitted Brand new procedure/testBrand new procedure/test
22/11/2018 N/A N/A Transperineal biopsy of prostate using transrectal ultrasound guidance New Code Submitted Brand new procedure/testBrand new procedure/test
22/11/2018 XR110 Ultrasound guided biopsy(ies) Ultrasound guided biopsy(ies) not otherwise specified (excluding transrectal) Narrative Change Submitted Improves coding structure and adds clarityThis has been discussed with Professor of Urology please see new code request also.
21/11/2018 E1260 Image guided endoscopic frontal, sphenoid and/or ethmoid sinus surgery (FESS) and bilateral N/A Coding Principles Submitted We have had several instances of E1500 being used alongside E1260 and our CMO feels that there is considerable overlap in these procedures and so only one should be used.
19/11/2018 N/A N/A Robotic assisted laparoscopic diverticulectomy of bladder - this is the robotic version of M3510 – laparoscopic diverticulectomy of bladder New Code Submitted Improves coding structure and adds clarity
19/11/2018 N/A N/A Robotic assisted laparoscopic nephroureterectomy - this is the robotic version of M0282 - laparoscopic nephroureterectomy New Code Submitted Improves coding structure and adds clarity
16/11/2018 V2680 Revision anterior discectomy, decompression and anterior fusion +/- instrumentation (lumbar region) N/A Coding Principles Submitted Our CMO feels there is overlap between these procedures and so they should be listed as an unacceptable combination. We have recently been asked to both both procedures together.
09/11/2018 N/A N/A Home sleep study including reporting New Code Submitted Improves coding structure and adds clarity
05/11/2018 TBA N/A Robotic-assisted pancreatoduodenectomy and excision of surrounding tissue (Whipple's procedure) New Code Published There is no code in the schedule for the robotic assisted version of J5610 Whipple's
05/11/2018 TBA N/A Laparoscopic pancreatoduodenectomy and excision of surrounding tissue (Whipple's procedure) New Code Published There is currently no code in the schedule for the laparoscopic version of J5610 Whipple's
