An Introduction to CPT Coding: CPT Guidelines and Notes

Green Clock Hours: 1.00

The Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) code set, developed and maintained by the American Medical Association (AMA), is used to describe physicians' and other qualified healthcare professionals' medical services and procedures. It is also the designated code set for reporting services provided by organizations or facilities in specific circumstances.  To correctly assign CPT codes, it is essential to understand the guidelines and instructional notes located throughout the CPT codebook. The purpose of this course is to guide the learner through the general guidelines for each section and subsection of CPT, as well as the parenthetical instructional notes used throughout the codebook. A current copy of the Current Procedural Terminology, Professional Edition, is strongly recommended to optimize your understanding of the content covered. 

Important Note
Throughout the CPT code set, use of terms such as physician or qualified health care professional/QHP is not intended to indicate that other entities may not report the service. In selected instances, specific instructions may define a service as limited to professionals or limited to other entities (e.g., hospital or home health agency).

The codes and information in this course receive a comprehensive review annually and are updated as needed.
