    Default Cpt 99144

    AAPC: Back to School
    Has anyone ever heard of an insurance carrier putting an age cap on this procedure code of age 5 - age 21??

    Default 99144

    The CPT specifically states that 99144 is for ages 5 years or older. There is no other limitation on age that I can see. The code for under 5 years is 99143.

    Hope this helps.
