CPT Code Changes Resource Center
CPT (Current Procedural Terminology) is a set of medical codes maintained by the American Medical Association and used in conjunction with ICD codes for medical billing, including mental health. CPT codes describe the services rendered and are supported by ICD diagnostic codes. While CPT code information is vital for all industries, many of the most commonly used codes for mental health were changed on January 1, 2013. Here are resources for your practice, not only for this change, but also for general CPT knowledge.
