The AMA owns the copyright to the CPT codes. Their site is useful and has a lot of information. For example, you can read more about the process of procedure coding on their site at this link: http://www.ama-assn.org/ama/pub/physician-resources/solutions-managing-your-practice/coding-billing-insurance/cpt/cpt-process-faq/code-becomes-cpt.page
Please add to the wiki by doing the following:
Identify a CPT procedure code and include the numerical code and description. Use the code search on the AMA website. Use this link https://ocm.ama-assn.org/OCM/CPTRelativeValueSearch.do?submitbutton=accept and enter a state, key words and click on Submit.
