The other procedures section includes acupuncture, suture removal and in vitro fertilization. Codes in this section have a first character value of “8”. The second character value for body system is physiological systems and anatomical regions. The other procedures section has only one root operation, defined as follows:

  • Other Procedures: Methodologies which attempt to remediate or cure a disorder or disease.

The fourth character contains specified body region values, and also the body region value none for extracorporeal procedures. Approaches included are percutaneous and external. The sixth character specifies the method (e.g., acupuncture, robotic assisted procedure). The seventh character is a qualifier, and contains specific values as needed.

When ICD 10 was implemented on October 1, 2015, it did not affect physicians', outpatient facilities', and hospital outpatient departments' use of CPT codes on Medicare Fee-For-Service claims. Providers should continue to use CPT codes to report these services.
