5 5 CPT Procedure Codes Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) is a uniform system of coding organized and maintained by the American Medical Association (AMA).

Serve as an effective means for reliable nationwide communication. Allow reporting of medical services and procedures to public or private health insurance programs.
6 6 ICD-9 Diagnosis Codes International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) is a system developed by the World Health Organization.

13 13 National Drug Codes (NDC) National Drug Code (NDC) serves as a universal product identifier for drugs.
14 14 National Drug Code (NDC) Converting NDCs from 10-digits to 11 digits. It should be noted that many National Drug Code (NDC) are displayed on drug packing in a 10-digit format. Proper billing of a National Drug Code (NDC) requires an 11-digit number in a format. Converting National Drug Code (NDC) from a 10- digit to an 11-digit format requires a strategically placed zero, dependent upon the 10-digit format. ne-management/price-list/index.html
