CPT® QuickRef from the American Medical Association The CPT QuickRef app puts all the coding and billing tools that you need in the palm of your hand. Developed by the American Medical Association (AMA), this on-the-go reference guide quickly helps you determine the appropriate Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) codes to use for accurate billing. (This app provides suggested codes. Final code selection remains the responsibility of the individual user.) CPT QuickRef is the only official mobile app from the AMA – the source of the CPT codeset, and experts to provide authoritative information about CPT codes and proper use. E/M codes are the most frequently used codes and arguably the most difficult to assign. The E/M Wizard (included in the free trial and with any single or multiyear Coding & Billing Pack purchase) will help physicians and qualified health care professionals select the right code according to AMA and CMS coding guidelines The app includes a 14-day trial of full access, after which in-app purchase or activation is required. Choose a single year Coding and Billing Pack, • The latest information — Receive automatic when new relative value units (RVUs) and proprietary laboratory analysis (PLA) codes are released or when technical corrections are made to 2023 CPT codes • Favorites — Select the codes you use most and save them to your favorites list • Facility and non-facility RVUs — Use federal data on facility and non-facility work and practice expense values • GPCIs — Set your region’s geographic practice cost index to calculate accurate Medicare payment for each procedure • Global days — Reference the number of global days CMS assigns to a given procedure • Color illustrations — Better understand complex procedures with 200+ procedural illustrations • Clear references to CPT® Assistant articles — View article titles and tap for direct access with the CPT Assistant Archive add-on • Over 4,400 Vignettes – understand exactly what procedures each code represents with typical patient and service descriptions
There was an update to the app and now it refuses to open. I even deleted it and then downloaded it again and it still refuses to open.
You can download the app but if you want to look at anything, you get a message to pay $60 dollars a month. NO THANKS! Not worth it.
I have now paid for the app twice. Once by purchasing the CPT book directly from the AMA. The app worked for approximately 9 months and then just stopped. After removing it and downloading it a second time, I decided to purchase the premium access to see if that helped. I am logged in and it shows as installed, but I still cannot access the codes. I contacted the AMA for a refund for the unsupported app, and they responded that they will not refund the money and I will need to petition Apple for a refund. As usual, the AMA shows what a garbage society it is.
First time user and I spent the money to view all years available. So far, I am not happy. I have already ran into a code that was added 9/22 but has not been updated in this app. I am unable to locate the effective date. Otherwise it is pretty easy to navigate and gives quite a bit of information. I will update my review after a little time.
This app locked me out after a month of use. Asks you to buy premium content as the free trial has expired. I never signed for any free trial. Bought the premium bundle that included the book as well from Amazon. There is a tab that says “Restore” but clicking it doesn’t do anything. Don’t know where to get help. Would not have bought this app if I knew of these issues.
I’ve been trying to contact developer thru the app since last August. The QR code purchased with the hard PT will not scan. The books through AAPC are not cheap and include the mobile app. It’s a good deal IF IT WORKED OR SOMEONE WOULD RESPOND.
Terrible. Just terrible. Customer care isn’t helpful either. I tried scanning the QR code from the 2020 version of the book but it doesn’t work. Customer care doesn’t seem to have a clue either. Just a horrible experience and customer care never follows up even though they say they will.
The CPT assistant doesn’t seem to include any of the stated figures (pictures), though it does include most tables. There’s also no search feature within the CPT assistant which would be nice to have. I had an issue where I had to re-register my account because my username no longer existed on the AMA end for some reason. During this time, it gave me a free trial of the CPT codes but denied my access to the CPT assistant. I tried everything on my end including rescanning the QR code, selecting the correct year of codes, as well as reinstalling the app. I even made a support request within the settings area of the app which is still unanswered to this day. Once the free trial expired, I was given access to CPT assistant again. I didn’t even need the free trial because my purchase included the CPT codes. I didn’t get what I paid for during this time.
This app WON’T find a code by text search unless you’re lucky enough to know the text description verbatim. This constitutes a “dumb” search. Their so-called “smart” search occurs if you already know the first 3 digits of the 5-digit code. Good luck finding the code of you know what to want but not precisely what the CPT calls it (and we’re talking about an document that won’t find the word “radius” if it uses the word “radial”).
