You’ll find 251 revised and 151 new Category I codes in your CPT 2013 manual. There are also about 100 codes have been deleted. Many of the revised codes are in the EM section where they have added the term "qualified health care professionals” to a code’s descriptor. 

In the MS section we did get some new spine; revised total shoulder and revised total elbow.  In the NCS section you will find all new codes inthe 959XX range and the deletion of the code for intraoperative monitoring which has been replaced with two codes - one for 'in-house' and the other for 'off-site'

Stay tune for more updates and watch for the newsletters which will also have further details
