A standardized coding system used to process claims for insurance payments by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. It consists of two parts: a coding system devised by the American Medical Association called the Current Procedural Terminology, which describes procedures and services provided by health care professionals; and a system that identifies health-related products and services that are not provided by physicians, e.g., emergency medical services, durable medical equipment, supplies, and orthotics.
