CPT® QuickRef from the American Medical Association

The CPT QuickRef app puts all the coding and billing tools that you need in the palm of your hand. Developed by the American Medical Association (AMA), this on-the-go reference guide quickly helps you determine the appropriate Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) codes to use for accurate billing. (This app provides suggested codes. Final code selection remains the responsibility of the individual user.)

CPT QuickRef is the only official mobile app from the AMA – the source of the CPT codeset, and experts to provide authoritative information about CPT codes and proper use. E/M codes are the most frequently used codes and arguably the most difficult to assign. The E/M Wizard (included in the free trial and with any single or multiyear Coding & Billing Pack purchase) will help physicians and qualified health care professionals select the right code according to AMA and CMS coding guidelines

The app includes a 14-day trial of full access, after which in-app purchase or activation is required. Choose a single year Coding and Billing Pack,

• Updated E/M Wizard – New 2021 guidelines for coding office & outpatient visits by time and medical decision making (coming in October)

App works

I had similar issues as the other reviewers giving it single stars. You HAVE to register Or sign in through the settings menu in the app. Otherwise you will still be locked out of the content. No issues with app itself, just need to follow instructions. I just wish the app was cheaper, hopefully it’ll be in good use.

Buggy, Slow and a Rip Off

App was terribly slow and glitchy and would not let me see the 2020 content after I repeatedly signed in and have purchased it

Buyer’s remorse

Rats. Wish I had read these reviews before my recent purchase. Clearly I’m not the only one having access troubles after purchasing “access”.
And I’m one of the apparently many who thought I was purchasing content rather than access.

Just caved and re-purchased after multiple calls and emails with customer service failed to restore my access. Figured I’d go ahead and buy 2020. Still can’t get access. And what I’m thinking is it won’t work until 2020 - because this lousy app still won’t acknowledge that I paid for 2019.

To add insult to injury, I just gave 60 bucks to an organization I rarely agree with and have never joined.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback. If you cannot access 2020 purchased content, please make sure you are logged in and selected 2020 in Settings.
