    Question AMA Coding Guidelines

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi All-

    Does anyone know where I can go and get AMA's Coding Guidelines? I mean I see articles referencing back to AMA's guidelines but no where do I see their actual guidelines published anywhere. Anyone know what I have to do or go where to get this information? Thanks much!

    The CPT Manual is authored by the AMA (American Medical Association). I believe the articles are referring you to the manual.

    Are you referring to the CPT Assistant articles?

    To answer both of Tracey Parsons' and Rebeccawoodward's questions I am not entirely sure. All that I am looking for is a document where AMA explains how certain coding issues should be coded. The form in which AMA presents this information is entirely at a lost to me. CMS has their coding guidelines available on their website and I wanted to get a copy of AMA's. If the CPT Assistant is what I should be looking at please confirm.
    Tracey--the manual you are talking about...is that the same thing as the CPT Assistant or are you referring to the CPT book itself?
