Gastroenterology specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of digestive system diseases and disorders of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Codes for digestive system services and procedures are found in the Surgery and Medicine sections in the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) code set. This course covers the basic anatomy of the digestive system as part of the foundational knowledge needed for appropriate reporting of these CPT codes. This course also introduces the learner to the format, guidelines, and common modifiers pertaining to the GI procedure codes in the Surgery and Medicine sections of CPT. A current copy of the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®), Professional Edition is strongly recommended to optimize your understanding of the content covered.

Important Note
The CPT code set is designated for reporting physician and other qualified health care professional services. It is also the designated code set for reporting services provided by organizations or facilities in specific circumstances. Use of the term "physician" throughout this course is not intended to indicate that other qualified health care professionals (QHPs) or individual entities (e.g., hospital or home health agency) may not report the service. In selected instances, specific instructions may define a service as limited to certain professionals or limited to other entities.
