Morphology of Neoplasms

    Default Morphology of Neoplasms

    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 never used on claims and are not for billing purposes. they are used by tumor registry. ICD-10 will not have an impact on the morphology codes.
