Updated New CPT codes of 2018 for Medical coders

In 2018, there are many CPT codes to be deleted from codebook. Every year we have new CPT codes and old codes gets deleted. This time we have new CPT codes in Evaluation and Management (E&M) facility. Along with CPT codes, there are lot of new ICD 10 codes as well added in codebook from 1st October 2017. 
It is very important now to remain updated with new ICD 10 and CPT codes from 2018 to use correct ICD 10 and CPT codes for billing.
