Apply for an AMA CPT License Annually to Keep Your Systems Up-to-Date
The health care industry relies on the CPT for critical coding and payment processes. A license from the AMA is required for health care delivery organizations and health information technology vendors who use CPT in their products (e.g., software).
Health care delivery organizations must license CPT for use within their organizations. Each organization must have a license for each system that contains CPT. The CPT data file is updated annually and a new license is required for each year’s new file.
