Question and answer
Q: Category III codes have five numerical digits just like the CPT codes.
A: CPT codes are of primary importance for a few different reasons: They are used by insurers to determine the amount of reimbursement a practitioner will receive under your health insurance coverage (and ultimately how much of the bill you will [ be left responsible for). As a continuation of #1, they are used by insurers to determine whether or not a particular procedure is deemed to be
wellness or illness related ? particularly important if you have a high deductible plan. They can be used by you to diagnose medical billing errors. They can be used by you to find out exactly what type of diagnostic, medical, or surgical work your physician has requested for you. Important stuff. What to do when you Come Across a CPT Code When your primary care physician orders up work to be done by others, hopefully they will have a conversation with you about exactly what that work will be. They will then send you off with a piece of paper that indicates exactly what that work is. On that piece of paper will be a set of 5-digit CPT codes. ]
