Three times a year, AMA opens a webpage that holds calendars and agendas for its upcoming CPT meeting. The webpage for the May 12-24, 2022, CPT meeting in Chicago is open.
As usually, the first item to go up is a posting of the Lab CPT submissions for comment and review. These are posted March 4, and commenters may request to review a packet til March 11, and must turn in comments by March 30 )[per handout]. This allows to be reviewed by internal working groups (MPAG for molecular tests and PCC for lab & pathology stakeholders as a whole).
All the other non-pathology codes will be posted for comment in a few weeks.
