Anticipated Adoption of 2018 CPT-4 and HCPCS Updates

October 30, 2017

The 2018 updates to the Current Procedural Terminology – 4th Edition (CPT-4) and Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) Level II codes are anticipated to adopt in the first quarter of 2018. This update will be effective for Medi-Cal and all specialty programs under the fee-for-service program.

More information about the forthcoming updates will be provided in future notices. To help providers easily locate the latest 2018 CPT-4 and HCPCS updates, a 2018 CPT-4 and HCPCS updates web page will be created on the Medi-Cal website under “Hot News.” This new page will contain all of the more recent updates, articles and links related to the 2018 CPT-4 and HCPCS updates. Providers will be notified once the web page is launched.

Providers are encouraged to subscribe to the Medi-Cal Subscription Service (MCSS) to receive notifications related to the update. These notifications will inform and prepare providers to minimize unnecessary service disruptions. Providers may sign up for MCSS by completing the MCSS Subscriber Form.
