Ask a Rev Cycle Expert: Charging for New Codes 0662T & 0663T?

Question:

We are looking for guidance when to charge for these new codes (0662T and 0663T) as of July 1, 2021. Should both of these codes be charged every time the cooling system is used?

Answer:

Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) code 0662T Scalp cooling, mechanical; initial measurement and calibration of cap is reported once per chemotherapy treatment period for the initial measurement and calibration. CPT® code 0663T Scalp cooling, mechanical; placement of device, monitoring, and removal of device (List separately in addition to code for primary procedure) is reported per chemotherapy session.
