CHCS-SS_CPT_FY2008_4630-1.0 was made available to all sites on 4 March 2008. The effective date for the new codes and inactivated codes is 1 January 2008. The latest version of the CHCS-SS_34890_4630 must be installed prior to or concurrent with the installation of the CHCS CPT FY 2008 v1.0 update. In addition, it is strongly recommended that sites install AHLTA 3.3.u2 prior to installing the CHCS CPT FY2008 v1.0 update. There is no suspense date for installing the special software package because the installation should be tied to AHLTA. This is an "anytime" install so users may be on the system. There are 448 new codes, 247 inactivated codes, and 5 reactivated codes. If necessary, refer to the 2008 Master List of added, modified, and inactivated CPT codes to identify the specific codes affected.
