2017 CPT-4 and HCPCS Updates Not Yet Adopted

January 3, 2017

The 2017 updates to the Current Procedural Terminology – 4th Edition (CPT-4) and Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) Level II codes are effective for Medicare on January 1, 2017. However, Medi-Cal, Every Woman Counts (EWC) and the Family Planning, Access, Care and Treatment (FPACT) Programs have not yet adopted the 2017 updates.

Providers should not use the 2017 codes to bill for Medi-Cal, EWC and Family PACT services until notified to do so in a future Medi-Cal Update or Family PACT Update bulletin.
