PRP gets CPT Category III code

By Matthew Twetten

On July 1, 2010, the American Medical Association (AMA) Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) introduced a new category III (new technology) code for the performance of platelet rich plasma (PRP) injection procedures. The specific wording of the code follows:

“0232T—Injection(s), platelet rich plasma, any site, including image guidance, harvesting and preparation when performed (Do not report 0232T in conjunction with 20550, 20551, 20600-20610, 20926, 76942, 77002, 77012, 77021, 86965.)”
