CPT code organization and E & M code

CPT Category I Code Organization

CPT codes are organized in sections as follows:
E/M Most Frequently Used

The Evaluation and Management codes, 99201 through 99499 are used by all specialties and facilities. These are listed first because they are the most commonly used. It's very important that these codes are accurately assigned because the majority of a practices income is based on these procedures.

The majority of E/M CPT medical billing codes require the provider to obtain information from the patient to access the necessary medical care. As such the E/M services are not significant procedures, but are important in determining the other procedures the patient needs.

  1. CPT,

    I just have a quick question for you but couldn't find an email so had to resort to this. I am a progressive blogger. Please email me back at [email protected] when you get a chance. Thanks.
