Is the AMA’s definitive drug class listing catalog all-encompassing?
The AMA’s definitive drug class listing catalogs the individual drug(s) within a drug class and maps the drug class to the appropriate CPT®. Coding guidelines warn that the listing is not comprehensive and that the reader should use the FDA classification of drugs to accurately associate with the drug class and CPT for those drugs not listed. Any drug metabolites not listed should be categorized with the parent drug.
