The AMA is the organization that creates and produces the CPT codes so yes they are in favor of this. As far as advance notice you get the notice when you get the new book for the year which you should get somewhere in November or December. Also the AMA has a book that you can purchase called CPT changes which comes out every year. This book explains this change and the rationale behind it. Or you can attend the seminar the AMA puts on in Novemebr of every year to explain the new changes effective for the next year.
The point is this information is available prior to the effective date, however it is rarely available free and to get it timely you need to plan the purchase of your books so that they arrive prior to January 1.
