We have more than 4M recoords encoded using CPT code 99207. Apparently the code was recommended by the AMA to bill for PPE and related costs during the Covid PHE. Ultimately the code was rejected by CMS and never added to the official CPT code set.
Anyone have an insight into how often termporary codes are proposed and used before they are (or are not) formally added to a vocabulary? Is there a way to manage these codes in the vocabulary files?
Any guidance on how to handle these in the ETLs? Exclude these records altogether, or include and map to concept_id 0?
