Manual Update to Pub. 100-04, Chapter 38, to Remove Identification of Items or Services Related to the 2010 Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico Section


This article informs you that Medicare will remove Section 20 (and all of its subsections) of the Medicare Claims Processing Manual (Identification of Items or Services Related to the 2010 Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico). The key impact is that HCPCS modifier CS is no longer to be used to denote services related to the 2010 oil spill.
