Medical experts ensure CPT codes reflect latest medical care

As the shared language for health care, CPT® reflects the very latest in medical care provided to patients. The CPT code set is updated with the ongoing, direct input of practicing physicians, medical device manufacturers, diagnostic test developers, and advisors from over 100 health care societies, as facilitated and approved by the independent CPT Editorial Panel.
