Category II Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) codes do not have a relative value associated with them and are not separately valued or reimbursable. They are used to report quality measures only. Use of Category II CPT codes is optional (not required for correct coding) and may not be used as a substitute for Category I CPT codes.
