CPT Code 36470 and 36471

  1. Default CPT Code 36470 and 36471
    Medical Coding Books
    Does anyone know when these two codes (36470 and 36471) went into effect? Or, could you please suggest a resource for me to check. I still have an old 2009 CPT codebook, and these codes are listed, so I know it was prior to 2009. Thank you.
