Category III CPT®1
Codes for FFRCT
The American Medical Association (AMA) recently issued a
set of new Category HI Current Procedural Terminology (CPT)
codes for FFRCT. With the new CPT codes, hospitals and clinics
utilizing HeartFlow® FFIRcT will now be able to generate claims
with both Medicare and commercial payers when FFRcr is
ordered for patients with suspected CAD.
The new FFRCT CPT codes will become effective on
January 1, 2018.
