The CPT ® codes is part of the HCPCS coding system. Each year the AMA releases coding additions, deletions and revisions. This year, in addition to these yearly changes, a significant change has been made to the Evaluation and Management Chapter as a whole.

In 2021, CPT ® saw significant changes to Office and Other Outpatient Services Guidelines and their Codes. Some aspects of these changes have been affected for the upcoming year. For 2023 CPT ®, significant changes to the remainder of the E&M coding section have taken place. This includes codes for Prolonged Care. Understanding the new Guidelines and Code descriptors in addition to seeing which codes are deleted is important to anyone working with the E&M Coding system. Other changes can be found in the Integumentary subsection, Musculoskeletal, Cardiovascular and Auditory Systems. Finally, a significant number of new codes can be found in the Digestive Subsection with new codes in 4 different areas.

Young, CEMA, CPC, CEDC, CIMC where she will discuss all of the changes to CPT ® for 2023 including the changes to E&M codes such as Hospital Observation, Initial Care codes in the hospital and Nursing Home codes to name a few.
