Specialist procedure codes

The Schedule of procedures and fees contains codes for procedures for which our policies provide benefit and is based on work undertaken by the Clinical Coding and Schedule Development group (CCSD).

To fully understand our approach to fees you will need to read the introduction to the Schedule of Procedures and fees. This contains important information regarding our billing principles.

Please note consultation fees are included in our Schedule of Procedures and Fees. They can be viewed within
‘Chapter 1 - Simple investigations and procedures and general procedures’ section 1.4 ‘Consultations and Physicians fees’.

From October 2015 we will be introducing a revised Schedule of Procedures and Fees for our fee limited specialists and will be writing to specialists about this in a phased approach.
