After each CPT Editorial Panel meeting, a document is prepared summarizing the actions that were taken by the Panel on each of the code applications. The summary documents, starting with the one for the October 2011 CPT Editorial Panel meeting, are accessible 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 3 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 31 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 31 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 1 and will be scheduled for implementation January 1.
Links to future Editorial Panel summaries will be added to this list after each meeting's documents are finalized.
