CPT Editorial Summary of Panel Actions
After each CPT Editorial Panel meeting, a document is prepared showing a summary of the actions that were taken by the Panel on each of the code applications. The summary documents, starting with the one for the Oct 2011 CPT Editorial Panel meeting, are assessible through the dated hyperlinks on this page.
Note: Codes that contain an ‘X’ (e.g., 1002X4, 234X2X, 0301XT) are placeholder codes that are intended, through the first three digits, to give readers an idea of the proposed placement in the code set of the potential code changes. These codes are not used for claims reporting and will be removed and not retained when the final CPT Datafiles are distributed on August 31st of each year. To report the services for “X” codes, please refer to the actual codes as they appear in the CPT Datafiles publication distributed on August 31st of each year.
Any Tier 2 Category I molecular pathology codes, administrative MAAA codes, vaccine codes, or Category III codes referenced in the Summary of Panel Actions document will be posted to the CPT website on or before July 1st and will be scheduled for implementation January 1st.
Links to future Panel Summaries will be added to this list after the meeting's documents are finalized.
