The American Medical Association owns the copyright to CPT, the code used by doctors. It publishes coding books and dictionaries. It also creates new codes when doctors want to charge for a new procedure. It levies a licensing fee on billing companies for using CPT codes on bills. Royalties for CPT codes, along with revenues from other products, are the associations biggest single source of income."

Good God. The largest medical political lobby in the country (AMA) owns the rights to the codes and are enforcing a monopoly because they had laws passed prohibiting other system. Now what few INDIVIDUALS are getting rich from this system at the top of the fraud/monopoly pyramid?

It's past the time for pitchforks, fire, and a firing squad.

Of course there is no published list for the PUBLIC to easily verify the billing for when some obscure code shows up. It's just more ways to hide the fraud. You have to register on the AMA website to get it I am told.
