It is usually up to the payer. The encoders that facilities typically use will apply both CPT & Volume 3 codes. However, if a payer does not want the volume 3 codes, they will be removed before releasing the claim. Example: Medicare does not want the volume 3 codes on outpatient claims. Some managed care payers want both CPT & volume 3 codes on the claim.
