CPT® 2016 Professional Edition is the definitive AMA-authored resource to help healthcare professionals correctly report and bill medical procedures and services. Providers want accurate reimbursement. Payers want efficient claims processing. Since the CPT code set is a dynamic, ever-changing standard, an outdated codebook does not suffice. Only the AMA, with the help of physicians and other experts in the healthcare community, creates and maintains the CPT code set. No other publisher can claim that. No other codebook can provide the official guidelines to code medical services and procedures properly. Noteworthy changes to the CPT 2016 code set from the 2015 edition will be found in the following sections and subsections: Cardiovascular, Prolonged Office Services, Digestive, Radiation Oncology, Vaccines, and Pathology/Laboratory Testing.
