Overview of the webinar

The CPT® manual is the HIPAA approved transaction code set that is used to report medical professional services to insurance companies for professional reimbursement of services and procedures. Each year this manual is updated to meet the current needs for coding and billing based on technology and methods of treatment for conditions and injuries. It is important that medical offices reporting professional services and procedures use the most current CPT® information for the date of service in which they are reporting services in order to obtain the reimbursement for these services and avoid delays in payment due to claim errors. It is also important that billers and coders have an understanding of why these changes are made, and the rationale behind the changes so that they are appropriately assigning CPT® codes for the services and procedures performed.
