Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) are numerical codes used to identify various medical procedures. These codes have many purposes but are not limited to: providing a uniform language for coding medical procedure, claims processing, developing guidelines and reporting to private health insurance programs.
There are three CPT code categories:
Category I CPT
Category I CPT codes are used to describe certain procedures or services. These codes are 5-digit numbers and are released annually.
Category II CPT
Category III CPT
CPT Code Management
The CPT editorial Panel, who is authorized by the AMA(American Medical Association), is responsible for updating and modifying coding rules, descriptions and guidelines.
