Confidential CPT Codes for Adolescents

Description:

The Chlamydia and Gonorrhea CPT Code Sheet, developed by members of the Section on Adolescent Health of the American Academy of Pediatrics and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, lists the available tests for sexually transmitted infections and an accompanying correct procedural terminology (CPT) code. These CPT codes can be used to ensure confidential billing for services provided to adolescents. The document includes vignettes portraying an adolescent receiving reproductive health services to help practitioners practice using the CPT codes to protect adolescent confidentiality.
