CPT or Current Procedural Terminology is an effective mechanism for streamlining the healthcare information technology. Authorized and approved by the American Medical Association (AMA), CPT codes are regularly estimated, reviewed and updated to display changes in medical information.  CPT code consists three types that include level 1, 2 and 3. The standard has 5 alphanumeric characters to showcase the exact treatment performed by healthcare providers. Every year the AMA updates the codes and ensures their validity.  

Some CPT medical codings have modifiers accessible for implementation that will help in adding the extra information to the procedure in order to describe the treatment performed in the better way. It reduces the mistakes in billing and also decreases the chances of claim denial while submission to insurance.
