    I know I've already gotten several catalogs to order the new CPT book, but that's all I know. My understanding is that the AMA loves to keep the CPT codes under wraps (i.e. they don't like to just put them out for public viewing unlike the ICD codes).

    all true, you can get the book or you can get their publication called CPT changes, which though pricey is really very good. I got mine Friday and there are a ton of changes and though some are minor they will change the way some procedures are coded. I would not have noticed a couple without the changes book.
