Radiation Oncology Coding

Coding_Resource

The radiation oncology coding section provides information on a number of activities ASTRO engages in to ensure proper coding of radiation oncology services. We also offer a number of resources to assist in correct coding of radiation therapy services and to assist you and your office staff in submitting accurate claims for reimbursement of services provided. 

2015 Radiation Oncology Coding Resource 

The Coding Resource is an essential coding reference for all radiation oncology practices. The brand new Coding Resource contains up-to-date coding and reimbursement changes, including guidance on all new CPT and HCPCS codes going into effect January 1, 2015. The Coding Resource was updated in May 2015 to include a new simulation code FAQ on page 55 and an updated IGRT reporting chart on page 161. Purchase the 2015 Radiation Oncology Coding Resource.

  • Code Development

    ASTRO works with the American Medical Association’s CPT and RUC to develop new CPT codes and assign relative value units to new and existing radiation oncology CPT codes. 

  • Coding Guidance

    Radiation oncology coding is often complicated with many nuances, yet applying coding guidance in a consistent manner is critical for all radiation oncologists. This section provides information on a variety of coding topics.
