G Codes For Mammography

When submitting mammography claims, you can continue to follow Medicare by continuing to use the current G codes for mammography. Medicare will continue to accept the following codes for mammography:

  • G0202, Screening mammography, bilateral (2-view study of each breast), including computer-aided detection (CAD) when performed,
  • G0204, Diagnostic mammography, including computer-aided detection (CAD) when performed; bilateral, and
  • G0206, Diagnostic mammography, including computer-aided detection (CAD) when performed; unilateral.

CMS has introduced new codes for mammography procedures, both diagnostic and screening. The new codes are: 77065 (Diagnostic mammography, including computer-aided detection [CAD] when performed; unilateral), 77066 (Diagnostic mammography, including computer-aided detection (CAD) when performed; bilateral), and 77067 (Screening mammography, bilateral [2-view study of each breast], including computer-aided detection [CAD] when performed).
