Shockwave Medical announces new CMS codes for intravascular lithotripsy


Shockwave Medical has announced new Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) codes for intravascular lithotripsy (IVL), a procedure performed in peripheral arteries in both hospital outpatient and inpatient settings.

The new Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) outpatient and International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision, Procedure Coding System (ICD-10-PCS) inpatient codes will go into effect on July 1 and Oct. 1, respectively.

Under these new codes, Medicare payment rates for IVL procedures performed in the hospital outpatient and inpatient settings, respectively, are consistent with current payment levels for other similar peripheral artery interventional procedures.
