2/6/2020 Appendix A Update

Please update Appendix A-Bowel; Principal CPT (Note 1) and ICD-10 Code variables (Note 1) to reflect this change: The following CPT codes must have the included bowel obstruction/volvulus/ intussusception ICD-10 codes: 44005, 44020, 44050, 44055 and 44180.
Programming in Workstation and Help Text is correct.

How to fix this:

  • Appendix A lists 44120 incorrectly as a bowel obstruction only CPT code [remove this from the bowel obstruction/greyed out list of CPTs, it is still an included CPT].
  • Principal CPT and ICD-10 Code lists 44021 incorrectly [remove this CPT from list as it was retired in 2020]
