Coding manual update has been released.

AGA, ACG and ASGE work closely together to ensure that our members are aware of, and prepared for, coding and reimbursement changes occurring each year. 
 
For 2017, there were several changes to Current Procedural Terminology® (CPT) codes for gastroenterology services, including important changes for moderate sedation in Medicare.
 
The 2017 update also features 10 popular Q&As on coding.
 
The policy advisors for the three GI societies continuously work through the AMA process to revise and add new codes as appropriate. 
 
Please review the 2017 CPT Coding Manual Update developed jointly for your reference by the three GI societies.
