Cpc Coding Scheme

The CPC coding scheme is used in the medical field to categorize and bill healthcare services. The system is maintained by the American Medical Association (AMA), which periodically updates it to reflect changes in healthcare practices, technological advancements, legislative mandates, and new treatments. The coding scheme allows for more accurate billing and reimbursement processes by providing a standardized way of documenting patient care across different settings.
