Most Psychiatry CPT codes (908xx) will change Jan. 1, 2013

Most of the codes in the Psychiatry section of CPT (the 908xx codes) will be changing for 2013. The new codes and their descriptors will be published by the AMA by the beginning of September and we will then be able to provide you with specific information about them at that time.

APA has prepared a FAQs document on the CPT code changes, which go into effect January 1, 2013. A review of the codes in the psychiatry section of CPT by the AMA CPT Editorial Panel has resulted in the creation of codes and the deletion and revision of some existing codes to more accurately reflect the way psychiatry is practiced today. The page will be updated as new questions are raised. Click here for more information.
