CPT Hierarchy


(Gerald Pulver) #1

Concept ID 45888760

Medication therapy management service(s) provided by a pharmacist, individual, face-to-face with patient, with assessment and intervention if provided

= CPT4 Hierarchy Concept Concept Code 1018516.

As CPT4 codes are all character strings of five numerals or four numerals and an alphabetic, from where do seven-digit “CPT4 Hierarchy” codes come? Are they created by OHDSI, enumerating sections and subsections of the vocabulary? Or are they just an aspect of CPT with which I am unfamiliar?

The latter. The AMA creates them. Not sure they are used that much.
