Using Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell therapy is one of the most promising new adoptive immunotherapy approaches for patients with certain types of leukemia and lymphoma. As the first products have been approved, clear coding and reimbursement challenges have been identified. Two new ICD-10-PCS codes for CAR T went into effect on October 1, 2017. The new codes are payer and product agnostic, meaning they can be used with all payers and for all CAR T products. The webinar will highlight these challenges and discuss ways in which ASBMT is advocating for solutions.

Goals of the session:

  • Provide updated information on CAR-T access models
  • Share ASBMT recommendations on coding for CAR-T
  • Discuss concerns with CMS reimbursement for CAR-T
