Permanent codes will always be available to be used by private payers and the government.

They cannot be altered unless all members of the CMS HCPS Workgroup are able to agree upon the changes. Temporary codes are temporary. They may eventually become permanent, but only after they have received approval. If permanent codes did not exist, billing processes would be delayed. These codes tell the insurance company the care the patient received. If the insurance company is unaware of why they are receiving a bill for a patient, they may deny the claim.
