Thread: Morphology of Neoplasms

  1. #1

    Default Morphology of Neoplasms

    AAPC: Back to School

    I was wondering if anyone has experience using the Morphology of Neoplasm codes for billing purposes. Can they/should they be used for Part B claims? How are they used and reported on a HCFA? And lastly, will they be obsolete with the implementation of ICD-10?

    I have been trying to find a clear set of guidelines to follow but I haven't found it yet. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    morphology codes are not for billing and are never used on claims. They are for use in tumor/cancer registry, and ICD-10 CM implementation will not affect their usage.
