The American Medical Association (AMA) has made Current Procedural Terminology CPT® code changes to the 2021 edition of the CPT.
Diagnostic Laboratory of Oklahoma (DLO) will be implementing these changes effective January 1, 2021. Overall, the changes for 2021 AMA CPT coding affect the way we bill some of our tests. These tests may also be included in panels or profiles. The chart below lists some of the tests affected and the appropriate CPT code changes.
