ACR Submits Comments on APC Placement of New CPT Codes

On Feb. 26, 2020, the American College of Radiology® (ACR®) submitted comments to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Division of Outpatient Care regarding the placement of new and bundled CPT codes into appropriate ambulatory payment categories (APCs) for Calendar Year 2021.

The ACR recommended the appropriate APC placement of the new low-dose CT lung cancer screening code and reiterated its position on the importance of widespread access to lung cancer screening for targeted high-risk populations.

Questions and comments about the recommendations may be directed to the ACR’s Christina Berry at cberry@acr.org.
