Immunovia CPT PLA Code submission for the IMMray™ PanCan-d test is on the agenda of American Medical Association
LUND, Sweden, April 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Immunovia, Inc., the American subsidiary of Immunovia AB (Nasdaq Stockholm: IMMNOV), has submitted an application for a Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) Proprietary Laboratory Analyses (PLA) code to the American Medical Association (AMA) for the IMMray PanCan-d test.
A PLA code for IMMray PanCan-d would allow health care professionals to specifically identify IMMray PanCan-d when submitting information and claims to health insurances and payers.
The PLA submission by Immunovia will be reviewed and voted on by the Technical Advisor Group on May 13th during a panel meeting. If approved, the issued PLA code would be published on July 1, 2022, and would be effective on October 1, 2022.
The CPT codes offer doctors and health care professionals a uniform language for coding medical services and procedures. It is the most widely accepted medical nomenclature used in the US to report physician and healthcare professional services including laboratory tests under public and private health insurance programs.
PLA Codes are an addition to the CPT code set approved by the AMA CPT Editorial Panel. They are alpha-numeric CPT codes with a corresponding descriptor for laboratories or manufacturers that want to identify their test more specifically.
