Common CPT Codes

Some commonly used CPT codes are preinstalled when you start using TherapyAppointment but you are free to add others. 

**NOTE:  You may also enter "pseudo-codes" that are not official codes: the pseudo-codes "NoSho" (to describe a billed no-show or a late cancellation) and "NoChg" (to describe a no-charge canceled session) are preinstalled. You may enter your own pseudo-codes, if you like, e.g. "Coach," to describe a coaching session that won't be reimbursed by insurance. Insurance claims are never generated for pseudo-codes.
