AMA holds CPT meetings in February, May, and October, and for each meeting it creates a new home page which holds agendas and other key documents, as well as a registration link.
- Virtual registration is open to 9/24.
- In person registration requires proof of vaccination and closes 9/13.
- This fall, on site registration will not be possible.*
The webpage for the September 30-October meeting has been created. It will be a virtual & in-person meeting (hybrid). For 18 months, all meetings have been virtual-only.
AMA releases lab codes earlier than other codes, to get a head start on public comments prior to the internal workgroup meetings for lab codes. The Lab public agenda has been released:
A cloud archive copy of the July 16 agenda with 8 lab codes, is here.
There are 8 code agenda items. You must request a code change review packet by July 23 (sorry, today), and submit it by July 30.
The 8 lab code topics are cutaneous melanoma; macular degeneration; Coenzyme Q test; gadolinium test; GSP code for bone marrow failure (814XX, separate from 81450, hematopoietic cancer), codes related to in vivo embryo culture; GSP code for drug metabolism (possibly a large panel of PGx codes?), and code for TPMT enzyme activity.
AMA also released the July crop of PLA code applications for comment a week or two ago, here.
* I believe at past in person meetings, registration "closed" several days ahead of the meeting, but on site registration was also possible.
