New EMG (Electromygography) CPT Codes for 2013:
Effective January 01, 2013, CPT Codes 95900, 95903, 95904 have been
deleted!

Your New Nerve Conduction Studies CPT Codes for 2013
(CPT Codes
95907-95913)
are the following:

95907         Nerve conduction studies; 1-2 studies
95908         Nerve conduction studies; 3-4 studies
95909         Nerve conduction studies; 5-6 studies
95910         Nerve conduction studies; 7-8 studies
95911         Nerve conduction studies; 9-10 studies
95912         Nerve conduction studies; 11-12 studies
95913         Nerve conduction studies; 13 or more studies

* If NO Nerve Conduction Studies (CPT COdes 95907-95913) are
performed on that day of service;

USE EMG CPT CODES:
95860         Needle electromyography; 1 extremity with or without related
paraspinal areas
95861         Needle electromyography; 2 extremities with or without related
paraspinal areas
95863         Needle electromyography; 3 extremities with or without related
paraspinal areas
95864         Needle electromyography; 4 extremities with or without related
paraspinal areas
95867         Needle electromyography; cranial nerve supplied muscle(s),
unilateral
95868         Needle electromyography; cranial nerve supplied muscles,

95869         Needle electromyography; thoracic paraspinal muscles
(excluding T1 or T12)








95870         Needle electromyography; limited study of muscles in 1

thoracic paraspinal, cranial nerve supplied muscles, or sphincters

* If the physician performs a Nerve Conduction Studies (CPT COdes
95907-95913) on that same day of service ;

USE EMG CPT CODES (in conjunction with the EMG service on the
same day):

95885         Needle electromyography, each extremity, with related
paraspinal areas, when performed, done with nerve
conduction,                                 amplitude and latency/velocity study;
limited (List separately in addition to code for primary procedure
*** Use and code first the nerve conduction tests (CPT COdes
95907-95913)

      
95886        Needle electromyography, each extremity, with related
paraspinal areas, when performed, done with nerve
conduction,                                 amplitude and latency/velocity study;
complete, 5 or more muscles studied, innervated by 3 or more nerves or 4
or more                                 spinal levels (List separately in addition to
code for primary procedure)*** Use and code first the nerve conduction
tests (CPT COdes 95907-95913)

95887         Needle electromyography, non-extremity (cranial nerve
supplied or axial) muscle(s) done with nerve conduction,  amplitude and
latency/velocity study (List separately in addition to code for primary
procedure)

POINTERS TO REMEMBER!
*** Use and code first the nerve conduction tests (CPT Codes
95907-95913)
*** Use and code first the nerve conduction tests (CPT COdes
95907-95913)
*** You can code either 95885 or 95886 "once" per extremity
*** Or, you can also code this together with CPT Code 95886 up to a
combined total of four units if all four extremities are                                 
tested
