Diagnostic Imaging Services has long touted the encouragement for all people to inquire and know about the CPT (Current Procedural Terminology) code that pertains to a medical exam, procedure or service that they are recommended to have.
However, other national resources are also recommending this to people as healthcare consumers. You have the right to know this code and with it, you can do two very important things with it.
Every medical, diagnostic, or surgical procedure or service has an associated 5-digit CPT code assigned to it. As an example in medical imaging, CPT code 72141 is for an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging )of the cervical spine without the use of a contrast dye. Common reasons a physician would recommend this type of MRI exam are neck, arm and/or shoulder pain, numbness, degenerative disk disease and herniated disk.
Become informed. Understand better why you NEED to know this code.
Say YES and spend LESS at DIS.
