The CMS is propos­ing to ac­ti­vate two new Cur­rent Pro­ce­dural Ter­mi­nol­ogy codes to be used for re­im­burse­ment for coun­sel­ing pa­tients on ad­vance-care plan­ning start­ing Jan. 1. One cov­ers the first 30 min­utes; the other, any sub­se­quent 30-minute blocks of time. Us­ing sur­vey data from 273 physi­cians, the CPT codes have been val­ued at 1.5 and 1.4 RVUs and will pay ap­prox­i­mately $86 and $75, re­spec­tively.
