Category III Codes Effective July 1, 2022

June 30, 2022

I  heard someone say the 2022 CPT manual will be updated in July with new codes. I have never heard of this before. Is this a rumor or will there be a new CPT Manual released in July?


No, there will not be any changes to the 2022 AMA CPT Manual in July.

The following AMA Category III Codes become effective July 1, 2022 and will be identified as new codes in CPT 2023.

Beginning July 1, report the Category III code when appropriate, in place of an unlisted code.
