The Current Procedural Terminology code 92506, which is evaluation of speech, language, voice, communication, and/or auditory processing, will be deleted effective January 1, 2014. It will be replaced with four new, more specific evaluation codes related to language, speech sound production, voice and resonance, and fluency disorders.
