The Clinical Coding and Schedule Development (CCSD) develops and maintains procedural and diagnostics nomenclature for private payers in England. Once codes are added to the Schedule, a private insurance company can develop reimbursement tariff for these procedures and tests.
The CCSD Group has approved the following procedure codes for publication to the CCSD Schedule in July:
- Video-assisted anal fistula treatment (H5580)
- Infracoccygeal sacropexy using mesh to repair uterine prolapse +/- ureterolysis (Q5460)
- Infracoccygeal sacropexy using mesh to repair vaginal vault prolapse +/- ureterolysis (P2453)
The following requests have been declined or withdrawn:
- CCSD declined requests for laying open of low anal fistula (fistulotomy) +/- insertion of stitch, +/- video assistance, (including sigmoidoscopy) and Laying open of high anal fistula (fistulotomy) +/- insertion of stitch, +/- video assistance (including sigmoidoscopy) due to implementation of new code for Video-assisted anal fistula treatment (VAAFT)
There were no changes to CCSD Diagnostic Schedule in July.
