2015 new CPT codes for GENOMIC SEQUENCING PROCEDURES AND OTHER MOLECULAR MULTIANALYTE ASSAYS (PATH/LAB)


The new section Genomic sequencing procedures (GSPs) are DNA or RNA sequence analysis methods that simultaneously assay multiple genes or genetic regions relevant to a clinical situation. Most commonly referred to a “Next Gen Sequencing” (NGS) or “Massively Parallel Sequencing” (MPS) in the laboratory, the tests are intended to evaluate the genetic material in totality or near totality.
 

The codes in this section should be used when the components of the descriptor(s) are met regardless ofthe technique used, unless specifically noted in the code descriptor.
 

If all the components are NOT performed, then you must assign code(s) in the Tier 1 or Tier 2 section or if they aren’t listed in the Tier codes, use the unlisted code 81479. AMA provides two parenthetical statements after this introduction section:

1.For cytogenomic microarray analyses, see 81228, 81229, 81405, 81406.
2.For long QT syndrome gene analyses, see 81280, 81282
