New and Revised CPT Codes For 2014
The following are changes to CPT codes that are effective January 1, 2014. We are including comments from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) regarding the CPT coding changes because health plans may adopt Medicare coding rules.
For more information on the new codes:
- 92521 Evaluation of speech fluency (eg, stuttering, cluttering)
- 92522 Evaluation of speech sound production (eg, articulation, phonological process, apraxia, dysarthria);
- 92523 Evaluation of speech sound production (eg, articulation, phonological process, apraxia, dysarthria); with evaluation of language comprehension and expression (eg, receptive and expressive language)
- 92524 Behavioral and qualitative analysis of voice and resonance

CPT 92506 has been replaced with four new evaluation codes related to speech sound production, language, fluency, and voice and resonance. (See new codes above)
No speech-language pathology codes have been revised for 2014.
