Medical Code Search — CPT Lookup Codes

CPT® Lookup Codes

The current procedural terminology, commonly referred to as CPT, refers to the medical code of the American Medical Association used by physicians, affiliates, non-physicians, hospitals, ambulatory clinics, and the laboratory for their services and procedures. Unless correct CPT codes are reported, no ambulatory service provider will be paid.

The current procedure, commonly referred to as CPT, is published by the American Medical Association, which physicians, allies, and non-doctors use for its services and procedures. These codes are not only used by hospitals but also by ambulatory services providers, such as physical therapists, radiologists, chiropractors, and diagnostic labs.

Codes 2021 ICD-10-CM

The latest ICD-10-CM (version 21.0) was published in October 2015 by the United States Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

[1] While many health service providers are concerned by the delay in ICD-10-CM implementation, CMS has ensured it is the final product to be implemented by 1 October 2015. ICD-9-CM is now referred to as the “ICD-10 codes” version to differentiate it from version 21.0.

A new set of codes, called ICD-10-CM (version 21.0), has been developed to substitute for the previous version of ICD-9-CM, which was introduced on 1 October 1990.

ICD-10-CM is designed to achieve diagnostic coding more accurately than its predecessor, which reduces payment mistakes in health insurance by increasing diagnostic accuracy.

The ‘ICD’ refers both to the ‘international statistical classification of diseases and the associated problems of health’ and its global use to classify diseases, injuries, and deaths. The range is between 0 and over 800. There are approximately 68,000 ICD-10-CM codes, up from about 14,500 ICD-9-CM codes. The ICD-10‐CM code should generally be more specific than the ICD-9‐CM value and gravity code. CMS uses the codes for diagnosing Medicare or other government-wide reimbursement services for administrative purposes.  For example, checkout the 99421 CPT Codes.

Many providers were concerned that the ICD-10-CM would be implemented late and initially scheduled for 1 October 2014. However, CMS stated in a policy memorandum issued on 11 May 2013 that version 20.0 would not be released by 1 October 2015.
