CPT Codes

Update: please read the October 2018 letter from the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code steering committee. ABAI and other stakeholder organizations have also compiled some materials to help providers prepare for the code revisions published by the American Medical Association (AMA) that will go into effect January 1, 2019.


CPT codes provide recognition from the AMA that applied behavior analysis (ABA) is an empirically supported and medically necessary intervention. For the past several years ABAI has been working with the AMA, with the help and support of Drs. Travis Thompson and Wayne Fisher, to establish new billing procedures for ABA and related services for people with autism and other behavior-related conditions.


Category III codes were implemented ­July 1, 2014.
