The last round of Correct Coding Initiative Edits for 2013 brings 1,276 new edits and springs some real surprises! CMS has removed 10,000 of the 300,000 new code pairs added last July from the active pair list. What’s even more surprising is that, of the 10,580 edit pairs that were put into the terminated column, nearly all of them were terminated retroactive to July 1, 2013.

Hundreds of new bundling pairs roll out each quarter, while others make their way out. To keep pace with the changes and safeguard your revenue, it’s essential that you have a resource for tracking and managing these updates.

Now there’s an easy answer!
