The American Medical Association (AMA) Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes and Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) codes listed, are provided for informational purposes only. The codes reflect our interpretation of CPT/HCPCS coding requirements based upon AMA guidelines published annually. CPT/HCPCS codes are provided only as guidance to assist clients with billing. Baylor Genetics strongly recommends that clients confirm CPT/HCPCS codes with their Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) or other payer being billed, as requirements may differ. CPT coding is the sole responsibility of the billing party. Baylor Genetics assumes no responsibility for billing errors due to reliance on the CPT codes listed. Please direct any questions regarding CPT coding to the payer being billed.
