After hours or weekend care Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) codes represent services provided when an individual physician or other health care professional is required to render the services outside of regular posted office hours to treat a patient's urgent illness or condition. This policy outlines when after hours or weekend care codes are considered for separate reimbursement.
