Re: Retirement of HCPCS code M0064


Please be advised that DMH has been informed that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will retire HCPCS code M0064 (psychotropic medication monitoring) as of January 1, 2015. Therefore, any claim submitted with this code with a service date of January 1, 2015, forward will reject. DMH is working with HFS to identify a replacement code and will get this information out to DMH contracted providers as soon as possible.

Thank you,
