This is CPT versus HCPCS codes.
The question is, “During my internship, I’ve noticed that some CPT codes are reported to Medicare using a HCPCS code (often a G code). I assume ‘somewhere’ on the CMS site I can find a correlation of these codes, so I can write them in my book, but I have not yet. Any idea where I could look?”
That would be nice, but unfortunately, that is not the case. So, there is no universal list. I think it’s really because it is payer specific. For the most part from Medicare, if you have a code that’s similar in CPT and the HCPCs Level II manual, then you’re more than likely going to go with the one in the HCPCS or the G code. There is normally some slight difference or sometimes a real big difference, but whatever that nuances
