Are there any 2023 NCCI changes for radiation oncology?


Yes, for 2023 the following changes were made in bold in the third paragraph of section one:

F. Radiation Oncology

E&M services (i.e., 99211-99213) may be reported with CPT® code 77401 (Radiation treatment delivery, superficial and/or ortho voltage, per day) with modifier 25 for the purpose of reporting physician services for certain aspects of radiation therapy planning. Modifier -59 is not appropriate to use with weekly radiation therapy management codes (77427) or with evaluation and management services codes (99202 – 99499).
