Learn what’s new in the CPT® code book for 2020. This high-level overview will provide a summary of the changes in store for your practice. Now that the code sets are active, it is important for practices to dive in, and see what’s deleted, changed and added.
Participants will learn which specialties will see the most changes and how to tell at a glance if their specialty will have many or few changes. This session will review the key symbols CPT® uses and describe the information a practice can know from these.
What’s new this year? CPT® codes for on-line digital management, skin codes for grafting, insertion and removal of drug delivery systems, and a smattering of new surgical codes. The radiology section has changes in definitions for a few exams and additions. The medicine section has new biofeedback codes, and new and deleted codes for health behavior assessment.
Have your CPT® book handy for this webinar.
After the seminar, participants will be able to:
- Define the symbols CPT® uses to indicate new and changed codes
- Identify new codes, if any, that the practice will use
- Explain the source documentation for coding changes
