There are a number of codes which were previously valid under the business rules which have been removed from v39, leaving just three. Version 41 of the rules, on which this year's payment will be based, contains ten such codes. The below table shows a comparison.
We will shortly be updating our customers with a new version of the template with these obsolete codes removed from the relevant picking list. The current template still contains the other codes, which may be used and are still within the business rules.
Meantime, practices may wish to download and run the following search which will identify patients with the wrong codes and allow these to be changed prior to year end.
