Updated AMA codes

  1. Default Updated AMA codes
    Medical Coding Books
    According to HIP, AMA CPT codes 51772 (urethral pressure profile studies, UPP)and 51795 (voiding pressure studies (VP) are no longer valid, and have been updated by the AMA. Does anyone know what the updated codes are?

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    If you look in your 2010 CPT book where 51772 and 51795 would have been, there should be a note to tell you what the new codes are to look at. I don't have my book with me right now, so I can't tell you.
