CPT Code

     A CPT code is used by the medical profession to designate the procedure or service rendered by the physician to a patient.  The procedural codes are listed in a book from the American Medical Association which is revised yearly. 

     CPT stands for Current Procedural Terminology which is a description of the procedure codes.  In the CPT Book they are each listed with an explanation of the code. 
Procedural Codes are a necessary part of medical insurance billing.   You need up to date billing code books as you will find that you are frequently looking up codes.  When codes are outdated, the insurance companies will no longer accept them and your claims will be denied for the codes.    
     CPT4 Code Books also contain a list of modifiers.  Modifiers indicate that a service was altered in some way from the stated CPT descriptor without changing the definition. The American Medical Association (AMA) CPT modifiers are two-digit numeric codes listed after a procedure code.

     Besides CPT4 code books, also available are ICD9, HCPCS, and RBRVS books.
