    Does anyone know if the AMA releases any of this information earlier? I was hoping to have information before the book ships in December.

    No there is no early release. The E book has already been released I received my download last week

    I agree that the CPT changes is a great book and you can order it now but that one is currently back ordered with a ship date of sometime on Dec. the CPT book is ready now as an E book but I have been told the hard book is back ordered. Yes there appears to be numerous changes this year.

    I just checked the AMA website store and the E-book isn't scheduled to be released until November 1st. Where did you get the e-book already? I have already pre-ordered my hard-copy. Thanks

    I pre ordered the E book in May. It is the only way to obtain the book before November. Every year they offer the opportunity to preorder the books in May to be able to receive them in September.

    I received my hard copy of the 2015 CPT last week from AAPC. I noticed a change to the way urine drug screens are coded and some of the flu vaccination codes are changing, but I don't do much work in 10000 - 79999 portions, so your mileage may vary
