Features

  • Improved! A comprehensive index — revised and enhanced for 2014 to better aid you in locating codes related to a specific procedure, service, anatomic site, condition, synonym, eponym, or abbreviation. An expansion of the pathology and laboratory index entries to include analytes and the elimination of redundancy throughout the rest of the index result in an index that is clearer and quicker to search.
  • More! Anatomical and procedural illustrations — help improve coding accuracy and understanding of the anatomy and procedures being discussed. Five new illustrations provide more information for those coding from the Cardiovascular System subsection of Surgery.
  • Listing of proprietary test names for multi-analyte assays — puts you ahead of the curve by informing you of existing tests that have yet to meet all of the necessary requirements to be placed among the Category I codes.
  • E/M reference tables — summarize the requirements for reporting E/M services thereby helping you to select and validate proper E/M coding.
  • Coding tips throughout each section — improve your understanding of the nuances of the code set.
  • Section-specific table of contents — provides users with a tool to navigate more effectively through each section’s codes.
  • Reference tables — define and differentiate key parameters in large families of codes.
  • Updated citations to CPT® Assistant, Clinical Examples in Radiology, and CPT® Changes — gives you immediate information to popular AMA resources that can enhance your understanding of the CPT code set.
