The American Medical Association (AMA) has released the 2023 Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) code set.
Modifications to the E/M codes for inpatient and observation care services, consultations, emergency department services, nursing facility services, home and residence services, and prolonged services are among 393 editorial changes in the 2023 CPT code set, which includes 225 new codes, 75 deletions and 93 revisions.
AMA has also developed an extensive online resource library of videos, guides, and educational modules to help with the transition to the revised E/M codes and guidelines.
Changes to the CPT code set are considered through an open editorial process managed by the CPT Editorial Panel, an independent body convened by AMA that collects broad input from the health care community and beyond to ensure CPT content reflects the coding and data-driven demands of a modern health care system. This rigorous editorial process keeps the CPT code set current with contemporary medical science and technology so it can fulfill its vital role as the trusted language of medicine today and the code to its future.
