The CPT® 2019 Data File download is a convenient way to import the 2019 CPT® codes and descriptions into existing documentation. It contains the complete CPT descriptor package, new descriptors for consumers and clinicians and the complete official AMA current procedural terminology coding guidelines.

Also included are consumer-friendly and clinician descriptors that support the objectives of the Meaningful Use Stage 2 proposed rule.

  • CPT consumer-friendly descriptors translate each descriptor from the official CPT code set into language that is easily understood by the average patient and caregiver
  • CPT clinician descriptors describe clearly and specifically the procedure or service performed by a physician or qualified health care provider at the point of care

Read more about the CPT® Consumer Friendly and Clinician descriptors.
