Question: I am a physician and don’t have time to learn the ins and outs of every code in CPT. I just want to get mine right. How do I learn what I need to know?

Answer: One of the most efficient ways for physicians to learn about coding is to invite a coding consultant into their practices to review charts and tell them where they are making mistakes (whether in coding or documentation).

It’s also absolutely worthwhile to invest an hour or two in reading the CPT manual for your areas of practice. The basics are all there.
