The new manual was then called The International Classification of Disease generic levitra professional 20 mg free shipping sublingual erectile dysfunction pills, 9th Revision purchase 20mg levitra professional free shipping erectile dysfunction cure video, Clinical Modification (ICD 9 CM).

CURRENT PROCEDURAL TERMINOLOGY CODES (CPT) The CPT manual was first published in 1966 by the American Medical Association. It is a manu- al written for physicians for the purpose of iden- tifying codes and listing descriptive terms for reporting medical services performed. The CPT manual is published annually with additions of new codes, modifica- tions of current codes, and deletions of codes. Because codes may be deleted or added each year, a therapist must purchase a new manual each year or have a source for current codes. Medical Codes for Massage Therapy 469 In order to select a code there are 2 requirements that a therapist must meet: They must hold certification to perform the pro- cedure which is described. Reading the descriptions in the CPT manual requires a medical background and a familiarization with medical terminology and their uses. The definitions and meanings of CPT codes is determined by the American Medical Association. Attempting to read this manual without some train- ing in coding interpretation is not recommended. When properly used, ICD and CPT codes accurate- ly and concisely describe the condition treated as well as the methodology of treatment. The implementation of HIPPA requires the use of CPT codes in all electronically transferred patient data in the United States. For current CPT code information consult with AMTA or ABMP or the instructors of the modality of massage and/or bodywork for which you would like to submit bills.
