Coverage for 0192T

The recent change in coverage for 0192T is applicable only to Novitas (formerly Highmark). Novitas is the Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) for Jurisdiction 12 (J12) that includes Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and the District of Columbia. For Part B services, the A/B MAC J12 includes the counties of Arlington and Fairfax in Virginia and the city of Alexandria in Virginia. Effective April 14, Novitas changed their policy (L31686) and deemed ALL Category III CPT® Codes not medically necessary, even though Highmark previously provided coverage for 0192T.

Industry leaders and the medical community are appealing to Novitas to reverse this policy. All other Medicare programs continue to provide coverage for 0192T.

0192T is covered by Medicaid programs in AZ, AR, CO, MI, MT, SC, and WV. However, as is typical with State Medicaid programs, some do not cover emerging technologies or they provide coverage on a case-by-case basis.
