In response to this thread:
If you are actually talking about the Current Physician's Terminology (CPT4)
codes, they are proprietary, They "belong" to the American Medical Association.
HCFA is not allowed to "publish" them in the same format as the AMA sells in
its book. You can probably buy it at amazon.com.
There is no reason why we cannot exchange SAS formats that use these codes,
though, as far as I know. I have done so in the past, but no longer this version
of them at work. Maybe someone else still has a copy.

Yes, we are, and I thought they were not proprietary. I am not sure why =
HCFA does not post the revenue code descriptions at their site. Perhaps =
they do not originate them. As you have surmised, I know little about =
