CPT Changes to Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) / Extracorporeal Life Support (ECLS)

In the CY 2014 PFS final rule with comment period, CPT codes 33960 (Prolonged extracorporeal circulation for cardiopulmonary insufficiency; initial day) and 33961 (Prolonged extracorporeal circulation for cardiopulmonary insufficiency; each subsequent day) were identified as potentially misvalued codes. Specifically, the services were originally valued when they were primarily provided to premature neonates; but the services are now typically used in treating adults with severe influenza, pneumonia, and respiratory distress syndrome. For CY 2015, CPT 33960 and CPT 33961 were deleted and replaced with 25 new codes to describe this treatment.
