Reminder: CPT® Codes May Change
Posted June 12, 2020
As a reminder, Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes may change throughout the year due to changes (new, replaced or removed codes) implemented by the American Medical Association (AMA). Refer to the AMA website for more information on CPT codes.
Our online systems are updated to reflect AMA coding changes. Be sure to check eligibility and benefits prior to rendering services to our members to confirm coverage and other important details, such as which services may require benefit preauthorization.

Checking eligibility and/or benefits and/or obtaining preauthorization is not a guarantee of payment of benefits. Payment of benefits is subject to several factors, including, but not limited to, eligibility at the time of service, payment of premiums/contributions, amounts allowable for services, supporting medical documentation, and other terms, conditions, limitations, and exclusions set forth in the member’s policy certificate and/or benefits booklet and or summary plan description. Regardless of any preauthorization or benefit determination, the final decision regarding any treatment or service is between the patient and their health care provider.
