The American Medical Association has an alphabetical listing of clinical conditions with which measures and CPT Category II codes are associated.

 

The use of CPT Category II Codes and ICD-10-CM codes can reduce the number of medical records that we request during the HEDIS® medical record review season (January – May each year), thus reducing the administrative burden on physician offices.

 

Below are some commonly used codes for your convenience:
