Articles

Question:

Do you know the codes that will trigger the new technology add on payment for the Rapid LVO?

Answer:

ICD-10-PCS code 4A03X5D, Measurement of Arterial Flow, Intracranial, External Approach, will be used to report the use of A.I. technology to identify large vessel occlusion (LVO) for new-technology add-on payment. For fiscal year 2021, this ICD-10-PCS code may be used for computer-assisted triage and notification of a large vessel occlusion using ContaCT®, which is currently marketed by Viz.ai, Inc under the tradenames Viz LVO® and Viz CTP® for the algorithm and processing technology, Viz HUB® for the text messaging and calling platform, and Viz VIEW® for the mobile image viewer. Use of this ICD-10-PCS code will trigger maximum add-on payment at a maximum rate of $1,040.00.

A list of all items and services that will trigger new-technology add-on payment is available in the reference documents posted on the Vitalware Main Dashboard entitled “New Technology Add-on Payment (NTAP) Criteria FY 2021”.
