CPT Codes

The Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code set is maintained by the American Medical Association through the CPT Editorial Panel.[
The CPT code set describes medical, surgical, and diagnostic services and is designed to communicate uniform information about medical services and procedures among physicians, coders, patients, accreditation organizations, and payers for administrative, financial, and analytical purposes.

New editions are released each October by the AMA. The current version is the CPT 2012. CPT coding is similar to ICD-9 and ICD-10 coding, except that it identifies the services rendered rather than the diagnosis on the claim.

  • EMD supports both Level I and Level II codes.
  • Through the inteligence of the application, our software has the ability to create pseudo procedure names that can be mapped to a single CPT code or to a grouping of CPT codes. This allows for rapid order entry and helps ensure that secondard codes are not overlooked at order entry.
  • The ICD 9/10 codes can be mapped to the CPT and insurance provider to facilitate exam appropriatness
