VSAB: CPT2015

Summary of Changes

New ATNs:
CODING_TIP
CITATION
PROPRIETARY_NAME
REPORTABLE - T/F indicates a reportable CODE. Previously, this information was embedded in the TTY. As of this release, the UMLS will include ADM codes, which will be TTY = PT, but REPORTABLE = F.

"ADM" is a new CPT_LEVEL value:
Multianalyte Assays with Algorithmic Analyses (MAAA), from Appendix 0; The codes for these end in "M", e.g. 0002M. T

The following new data was not inverted:
Level = POS (place of service)
HCPCS Level II Codes

Source Provided Files:

Documentation:
Extensive documentation is provided, including:

File Name Description
2015 CONSUMER FRIENDLY DESCRIPTORS ReadMe.doc
User guide for Consumer Descriptor data
2015_CLINICIAN DESCRIPTORS_ReadMe.doc User guide for Clinician Descriptor data
2015_CPT_DTK_ReadMe_with_OWL.doc User guide for main data files

Data:

DTK files are available in both "tab" and "pipe" delmited formats. The UMLS uses the following data files:
File Name Description
ClinicianDescriptor_DTK_pipe.txt Clinician Descriptors
ConsumerDescriptor_DTK_pipe.txt
Consumer-friendly Descriptors
Property_DTK_pipe.txt In the Property File, a concept is represented by a set of lines that all have the same CONCEPT ID. Some of the concepts in the Property File correspond to reportable CPT codes, some were constructed by the AMA for the 2014 CPT DTK, and some were drawn from SNOMED CT.
Relationship_DTK_pipe.txt In the Relationship File, relationships between two concepts are represented.
Type_DTK_pipe.txt
The Type File provides a succinct representation of the types of information contained in the Property File and the Relationship File. The PROPERTY TYPE ID column from the Property File and RELATIONSHIP TYPE ID column from the Relationship File both correspond to the TYPE ID number from the Type File. Thus, the Type File enables a user to see at a glance all of the categories of relationship types used in the 2014 CPT DTK

Identifiers:

Identifiers are assigned as follows:
  • CODE:
    • TTY = PT, SY, AB, ETCF, ETCLIN: Value of CPT_Code Property (Type Id = 104)
    • TTY = HT: Concept Id value
    • TTY = MP: Value of Modifier_Code Property (Type Id = 129)
  • SAUI: Not Applicable
  • SCUI: Same as CODE
  • SDUI: Not Applicable
