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.

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
31/10/2018 S5211 N/A Injection of botulinum toxin for hyperhidrosis New Code Published Brand new procedure/testThis is one of the procedures previously coded using the generic S5210 code which we removed last year
29/10/2018 20370 Non face to face consultation (e.g. telephone, skype) - 30 minutes and over Remote consultation 30 minutes or more Narrative Change Published to change the narrative on the code as it has a reference to Skype and It comes across as we are promoting the brand
29/10/2018 20360 Non face to face consultation (e.g. telephone, skype) - 16 to 29 minutes Remote consultation 16 – 29 minutes Narrative Change Published to change the narrative on the code as it has a reference to Skype and It comes across as we are promoting the brand
29/10/2018 20350 Non face to face consultation (e.g. telephone, skype) - up to 15 minutes Remote consultation - up to 15 minutes Narrative Change Published to change the narrative on the codes as it has a reference to Skype and It comes across as we are promoting the brand
22/10/2018 N/A N/A US Doppler Vascular Limb (including duplex) - bilateral New Code Published Improves coding structure and adds clarityThis is a request for a bilateral version of IM269 which is already an active CCSD code
15/10/2018 W5830 Robotic assisted total knee replacement N/A Coding Principles Submitted Our CMO has requested that the non-robotic procedure is listed with the robotic procedure to ensure specialists are clear it is one or the other, as we have received bills with both codes detailed.
15/10/2018 Q2233 Open oophorectomy and salpingectomy, +/- biopsy eg. omentum, peritoneum, lymph node (as sole procedure) - bilateral N/A Coding Principles Published These procedures are all listed as overlapping with Q2230 and so our CMO feels they should also be listed with this procedure.

15/10/2018 Q2231 Laparoscopic oophorectomy and salpingectomy, +/- biopsy eg. omentum, peritoneum, lymph node (as sole procedure) - unilateral N/A Coding Principles Published These procedures are all listed as overlapping with Q2230 and so our CMO feels they should also be listed with this procedure.
15/10/2018 Q0710 Radical hysterectomy and lymphadenectomy (Wertheim's) +/- ureterolysis N/A Coding Principles Published Our CMO has advised these codes should not be used with the Q0710 as these procedures are included within the Wertheim's procedure.
02/10/2018 T8580 N/A Please consider removal of "as sole procedure" Narrative Change Submitted To reflect updated clinical practice: Gynaecologists rarely ever do pelvic lymph nodes as a sole procedure. It will often be done with a hysterectomy. If it is a radical hysterectomy then there is a separate code for it that combines the two (Q0170). However if it is a simple hysterectomy then it has to be combined with a Q0740 or similar. There also seems to be an inconsistency! It can't be stated that it should be a sole procedure whilst also having associated invalid combinations. If it is a sole procedure there cant be any combinations at all!
02/10/2018 Q2230 N/A Please consider removing "as sole procedure" Narrative Change Submitted To reflect updated clinical practice: There are many instances where a patient may also require a hysteroscopy (Q1800) for a separate reason (endometrial polyp or investigation of heavy periods or postmenopausal bleeding) whilst also having an ovarian cyst that needs remedying.
02/10/2018 Q4400 N/A Please consider removing "as sole procedure". Narrative Change Submitted To reflect updated clinical practice: There are many instances where a patient may also require a hysteroscopy (Q1800) for a separate reason (endometrial polyp or investigation of heavy periods or postmenopausal bleeding) whilst also having an ovarian cyst that needs remedying.
