Common Procedural Terminology (CPT) Code

A five-digit code used by healthcare providers and settings to identify healthcare services and procedures. CPT Codes distinguish procedures from one another, such as a CT of abdomen with dye (CPT Code 74160) and a CT of abdomen without dye (CPT Code 74150). To get an accurate average payment, ask your healthcare provider for the CPT Code for your service or procedure. See the Services and Procedures page for a complete list of services and procedures reported on CompareMaine and their associated CPT Codes.
