Evaluation and Management: — Anesthesia: — ; — Surgery: — Pathology and Laboratory: — Medicine: — ; — Within each of these code fields, there are subfields that correspond to how that topic—say, Anesthesia—applies to a particular field of healthcare. For instance, the Surgery section, which is by far the largest, is organized by what part of the human body the surgery would be performed on. Likewise, the Radiology section is organized into sections on diagnostic ultrasound, bone and joint studies, radiation oncology, and other fields.
Please refer to the eBook for a complete breakdown of the subfields used in each of the code fields. Each of these fields has its own particular guidelines when it comes to use.
For example, the Surgery section has a guideline for how to report extra materials used such as sterile trays or drugs and how to report follow-up care in the case of surgical procedures.

If a procedure is indented below another code, the indented procedure is an important or noteworthy variation on the above procedure, and would replace the first code. The first, which comes before the semicolon, is the general procedure.
If we look in the CPT manual, we find the code below These modifiers are two-digit additions to the CPT code that describe certain important facets of the procedure, like whether the procedure was bilateral or was one of multiple procedures performed at the same time. CPT modifiers are relatively straightforward, but are very important for coding accurately.
For now, just recognize that the CPT code set has a number of instructions that inform the medical coder on how to best code the procedure performed. Remember that you always need to code to the highest level of specificity, and a miscoded procedure can be the difference between an accepted and rejected claim. Category I CPT codes are numeric, and are five digits long. Each of these sections has its own subdivisions, which correspond to what type of procedure, or what part of the body, that particular procedure relates to.
The sections are grouped numerically, and, aside from Evaluation and Management, are in numerical order.
Intro to CPT Coding
Each of these sections also has specific guidelines for how to use the codes in that section. Certain codes have related procedures indented below them. These indented codes are important variations on the code above them, and denote different methods, outcomes, or approaches to the same procedure.
For example, the code for the elevation of a simple, extradural depressed skull fracture is The code for the elevation of a compound or comminuted, extradural depressed skull fracture is Coding Packages. This is the AMA's official coding resource for procedural coding, rules and guidelines, which can help readers perform accurate claims submissions.
For now, just recognize that the CPT code set has a number of instructions that inform the medical coder on how to best code the procedure performed. Please refer to the eBook for a complete breakdown of the subfields used in each of the code fields.
