If you have an innovation that can help physicians provide better care, make sure it gets a CPT® code. 

The Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code set is the most widely accepted medical nomenclature used across the country to report medical, surgical, radiology, laboratory, anesthesiology, genomic sequencing, evaluation and management (E/M) services under public and private health insurance programs.

The development and management of the CPT code set rely on a rigorous, transparent and open process led by the CPT Editorial Panel. Created more than 50 years ago, this American Medical Association (AMA)-convened process ensures clinically valid codes are issued, updated and maintained on a regular basis to accurately reflect current clinical practice and innovation in medicine. This is why CPT is referred to as the language of medicine today and the code to its future.

Apply for your code today.
