New physician specialty codes

    Question New physician specialty codes
    Medical Coding Books
    Trying to find information on Medicare Physician Specialty codes - specifically EP. We have a new carrier and finding info on their website is difficult, to say the least. I seem to remember EP and Sports Medicine are recognized as specialties as of 7/5/11, but can't find the actual documentation to support it.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated!
