FAQ

What does "column 2" mean in the column 1/column correct coding edits table and in the mutually exclusive edits table?

Formerly known as the "component code" within the column 1/column 2 correct coding edits table, this code represents the lesser procedure or service when reported with the column 1 code. When reported with the column 1 code, the "column 2" code generally represents the code with the lower work RVU of the two codes. However, within the mutually exclusive edits table, the "column 2" code generally represents the procedure or service with the higher work RVU, and is the non-payable procedure or service when reported with the column 1 code.
