The American Medical Association (AMA) has announced changes to CPT codes for Health and Behavior Assessment and Intervention services. The nine new service codes, five base codes 96156, 96158, 96164, 96167, 96170 and four add-on codes 96159, 96165, 96168, 96171, will replace six older codes to more accurately reflect current clinical practice that increasingly emphasizes interdisciplinary care coordination and teamwork with physicians in primary care and specialty settings.
