Do not report electromyographic studies performed with surface electrodes instead of needle technology with CPT code 95860. Do not report nerve conduction studies that do not provide real-time conduction amplitude and latency/velocity data with CPT codes 95900, 95903 or 95904.
Per the CPT code book, “codes 95907-95913 describe one or more nerve conduction studies.
95930CPT code for Visual Evoked Potentials or Responses (VEPs/VERs): 95930.
The following ICD-10-CM codes support medical necessity and provide coverage for (CPT) codes: 87505 and 87506, 87507 and 0097U when used for beneficiaries with a paralytic ileus as outlined per the related LCD. Asterisk note: ICD-10-CM diagnosis code R10. 84 or R11. 2 must be reported with ICD-10-CM diagnosis code K56.
In September, the American Medical Association (AMA) approved new CPT code 99072 in an effort to help offset the extra expenses practices have incurred related to COVID-19.
Auditory evoked potential (AEP) is a type of EEG signal emanated from the brain scalp by an acoustical stimulus. The goal of this review is to assess the current state of knowledge in estimating the hearing threshold levels based on AEP response. AEP response reflects the auditory ability level of an individual.
92652 reflects comprehensive AEP testing for the purpose of quantifying type and degree of hearing loss. Don't report 92652 in conjunction with 92651 or 92653. 92653 describes testing to evaluate neural integrity only, without defining threshold.
87635 Infectious agent detection by nucleic acid (DNA or RNA); severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) (Coronavirus disease [COVID-19]), amplified probe technique.
Per the MolDX: Multiplex Nucleic Acid Amplified Tests for Respiratory Viral Panels LCD, tests that include more than 5 viral pathogens are non-covered. Included in this are 87632, 87633, and additional PLA codes listed in the CPT/HCPCS Codes Group 2: Codes section of this Billing and Coding article.
87591 - Infectious agent detection by nucleic acid (DNA or RNA); Neisseria gonorrhea, amplified probe technique.

Different levels of physician supervision apply to different kinds of IOM procedures. Code 95940 supervision require continuous physician monitoring in the operating room (OR). Code 95941 supervision require continuous physician monitoring which can be provided online or in the operating room (OR). Codes 95961-95962 (Functional cortical localization with brain stimulation) require personal physician supervision in the OR.
It is also expected that a specifically trained technologist or non-physician monitorist, preferably with credentials from the American Board of Neurophysiologic Monitoring or the American Board of Registration of Electrodiagnostic Technologists (ABRET), will be in continuous attendance in the operating room, with either the physical or electronic capability for real-time communication with the supervising physician.
Note: All ICD-10-CM codes listed below may be viewed as medically necessary; however, there may be other diagnostic codes not included in this list that are deserving of consideration for coverage. Such instances may require individual consideration.
