What are CPT Codes?
Last Updated March 14th, 2017
The Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code set is a medical code set maintained by the American Medical Association (AMA) through the CPT Editorial Panel. The CPT code set (copyright protected by the AMA) describes medical, surgical, and diagnostic services. These coding sets are copyrighted, and PokitDok, Inc. has the licensing rights to redistribute these coding sets. 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.
