    Default 2012 CPT changes
    Exam Training Packages
    While I know the "offical" word would be in the manuals, where could I get information on some of the upcoming changes? Specifically, I am interested in the change of definition on new v. established patients with subspecialties. I am getting questions about this, and want to find the information to conduct my research?

    Thanks!

    Apparently, it's in the 2012 CPT book (which I don't have yet)...but here's another recent thread about this, if you haven't seen it yet. May be helpful to you

    While it didn't answer my question directly, the thread was good and I posted there as well. I am in your boat as well...I don't have my '12 manual yet.
