Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ: Can I Access CPT® Assistant Articles Using My SuperCoder Account?

 

To access CPT® Assistant articles through your SuperCoder account, you can subscribe to Code Connect. This package allows you to search and read articles and Frequently Asked Questions from AMA’s monthly CPT® Assistant newsletters.

 

To search the articles, log in and then select Publications/AMA CPT® Assistant from the top menu. On the page that opens, you’ll be able to search by code or keyword.

 

Tip: You can use the main SuperCoder search bar to find CPT® Assistant articles, too. Select Publications from the dropdown menu by the search bar to limit your search to publications (or select the Publications tab on the results page). You can further narrow your search by clicking the box next to CPT® Assistant on the left menu of the results page.

 

If you have an online coding package, you’ll find links to relevant CPT® Assistant articles on individual CPT® code details pages, as well. In the Related Articles box on the code details page, open the Code Connect tab to view clickable article titles from CPT® Assistant.
