CMS will no longer publish a Mutually Exclusive edit file

In order to simplify the use of NCCI edit files, CMS will consolidate the two edit files into the Column One/Column Two Correct Coding edit file. This change will occur for practitioner NCCI edits version 18.1 scheduled for April 1, 2012. After these changes occur, it will only be necessary to search the Column One/Column Two Correct Coding edit file for active or previously deleted edits. Effective April 1, 2012, CMS will no longer publish a Mutually Exclusive edit file on its website for either practitioner or outpatient hospital services since all active and deleted edits will appear in the single Column One/Column Two Correct Coding edit file on each website.
