cpt code 77082

New CPT code for VFA

Vertebral fracture assessment (VFA): The existing VFA code (CPT 77082) has been deleted, and two new VFA codes (CPT 77085 – CPT 77086) have been created. CPT Code 77085 is a combination code that includes axial dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) as well as VFA, while CPT 77086 represents a stand-alone VFA. The existing codes for axial and appendicular DXA studies (CPT 77080, CPT 77081) are not changing and will be used whenever DXA is performed without VFA.
