AMA: 25% of 2014 CPT Code Changes to Impact Gastroenterology

The American Medical Association has released the 2014 Current Procedural Terminology code set, which includes 335 changes to better reflect medical advances.

About 25 percent of all CPT code changes this year stem from the two-year effort to revise gastroenterology codes. The new codes capture the significant advances in endoscopic technology, devices and techniques. Changes to lower gastrointestinal services will be released with the 2015 CPT code set.

The new code set applies to all claims filed on or after Jan. 1, 2014. 

The AMA developed a transition grid to help providers smoothly transition to the revised GI codes.
