The American Medical Association requests that the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code set be added to the standards listed in Section I: Representing Immunizations - Historical. The CPT code set is identified as a terminology standard for Representing Immunizations – Administered, so therefore, it should be included as a standard for historical immunizations. CPT was created over 50 years ago and is a uniform language that accurately describes medical, surgical, and diagnostic services and provides for reliable communication among users. It has an extremely robust and mature development process with open and transparent meetings and clinical input from national medical specialties and relevant stakeholders. It is the most widely adopted outpatient procedure code set. Use of the CPT code set is federally required under HIPAA.
