This product includes the webinar and CME/CMLE credit


Knowledge of the coding structure of molecular medicine is crucial as these codes are incorporated and used by insurers to identify the services you provide to patients and understanding the basics of CPT® coding will benefit your laboratory practice and management. The American Medical Association (AMA) Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) coding system is used throughout the United States as a main system of coding for health care services, including laboratory and pathology procedures. The AMP Economic Affairs Committee (EAC) is intimately involved in this process, both by submitting code change applications regularly but also by occupying a rotating seat on the Pathology Coding Caucus, which reviews and provides recommendations to the AMA CPT® Editorial Panel on applications for new or revised pathology and laboratory services. During this webinar, AMP members will be provided with a better understanding of the intricacies of the CPT® coding structure and process for laboratory and pathology codes. This webinar will also educate members by providing resources and tips for submitting your own code change application.
