Creating Custom CPT Codes
The CPT code setup includes Standard codes (fees you charge for the CPT codes used on claims), Add-on codes (used to modify claims), Custom codes (additional codes your practice uses), and System codes (late cancellations and no shows).
Click on Practice Settings, then select the Billing & Insurance top tab. Within the CPT Codes section, click the Set Up option.
Here is also where you Activate Standard CPT codes, as well as Add-on codes.
When creating a Custom CPT code:
- Click +Add New Code
- Enter a Code
- Enter a Name
- If applicable, include a fee, time reserved, and/or session duration
**NOTE: Custom codes will not populate on claims. To add a CPT code that will be present on claims, add to the "Standard" or "Add-On" code list as appropriate.
