Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) Code Flyer

A barrier to delivery of falls risk assessments in clinical settings is lack of a dedicated Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code for this service. However, providers are able to counsel their patients regarding falls risk and bill payers using existing Evaluation and Management (E/M) CPT codes. This resource provides detail on which CPT codes to use for falls assessment and intervention. Information about falls-related quality indicators as a means to incentivize providers to conduct falls prevention activities is also included on the resource.
