AMA Releases Code Proposals for Lab Tests for September 2022 CPT Meeting

AMA recently released the website for registration and agendas for the September 2023 CPT meeting in Seattle.  July 1, they released for public comment the lab test applications.

It's the shortest lab list ever, I think.  There's a Category I application for anti-Purkinje cell antibodies (8X015).   There are a range of codes listed simply for unstated editorial revisions.  There are a number of codes listed for editorial change because "mental retardation" needs to be replaced with "intellectual disabilities."

To comment, you must apply via a portal called ZenDesk to request permission to comment by July 8, which should trigger your being sent a comment template, and return it by July 22.
