The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) developed the National Correct Coding Initiative (NCCI) to promote national correct coding methodologies and to control improper coding that leads to inappropriate payment of Part B claims. The coding policies are based on coding conventions defined in the American Medical Association’s Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) Manual, national and local Medicare policies and edits, coding guidelines developed by national societies, standard medical and surgical practice, and/or current coding practice. NCCI includes three types of edits: NCCI Procedure-to-Procedure (PTP) edits, Medically Unlikely Edits (MUE), and Add-on Code Edits.
NCCI PTP edits prevent inappropriate payment of services that should not be reported together. Each edit has a column one and column two HCPCS/CPT code. If a provider reports the two codes of an edit pair for the same beneficiary on the same date of service, the column one code is eligible for payment but the column two code is denied unless a clinically appropriate NCCI-associated modifier is also reported. The additions, deletions, and modifier indicator quarterly changes to PTP column 1/ column 2 correct coding edits and the PTP mutually exclusive code edits for physicians/practitioners are updated on CMS website.
