Here’s a first: Medical coders will have fewer procedural codes in 2020 from which to choose. The facility procedural code set will go from 78,881 codes to 77,559 codes effective Oct. 1, 2019.
There are 734 code additions, 2,056 deletions, and two revisions, according to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

Revisions to ICD-10-PCS Codes

Thankfully, we only have two revisions to contend with:
Revise from: XW03372 Introduction of Andexanet Alfa, Factor Xa Inhibitor Reversal Agent into Peripheral Vein, Percutaneous Approach, New Technology Group 2
Revise to: XW03372 Introduction of Inactivated Coagulation Factor Xa into Peripheral Vein, Percutaneous Approach, New Technology Group 2
