This article provides an overview of some of the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) code changes that may affect reporting of pediatric services on and after January 1, 2019. Code changes discussed in this issue of AAP Pediatric Coding Newsletter™ will be implemented for services provided on and after January 1, 2019, so continue reporting 2018 codes until then. New codes reported prior to that date will likely result in claim rejection for invalid code submission. Information on codes, descriptors, and instructions is subject to change prior to implementation, so please be sure to verify changes in your 2019 coding manual or electronic coding reference prior to utilization. Be sure to update any coding quick references commonly used in your practice.

Most code changes described in this newsletter are presented using the format followed by Appendix B of CPT.
