Text2Codes API Documentation


Text2Codes Application Programming Interface (API) purpose:


1. Help you rapidly integrate state-of-the-art, fast and accurate natural language processing (NLP) technology into your application so you can offer Computer Assisted Coding (CACS) to your customers:
Extract medical terms that have at least one related CPT or ICD10 code from free text.

2. Help your application minimize claims rejection, under and over coding/billing - by using the Local Coverage Determination (LCD) policies on medical necessity at a specific US jurisdiction - functionality Text2Codes exposes at the API endpoints detailed below.

Our API endpoints offer simple REST calls that return information in JSON format.

You can access all our endpoints (except apiFreeText) by copying the GET endpoints, modifying the clinical content and pasting them in your browser address bar for immediate testing.
apiFreeText requires a POST, so it won't work directly from the browser address bar, as you need the free text in the body of an API POST call

If you have any questions or ideas for improving the API please contact us at text2codes@codixim.com and we will get back to you promptly.

The following 8 API endpoints / functions are currently available:

API Endpoint Method You send to API API responds with
apiFreeText POST Natural language, free text Coding candidates: medical terms that have at least one CPT or ICD10 code
apiSinglePhrase GET Single phrase made of up to 250 chracters or a code (CPT or ICD10) for reverse search CPT, ICD10 Diagnosis or ICD10 Procedure codes
apiCPTDiagLCD GET Location, CPT code and ICD10 Diagnosis code Any LCD supporting the medical necessity of the CPT procedure with an ICD10 Diagnosis code in a specific jurisdiction. Any LCD explicitly NOT supporting the CPT code with the ICD10 Diagnosis code at your location.
apiCPTCodeDetails GET CPT code Details about the CPT code: Physician Medicare fees in your region, LCD supporting or NOT supporting this code, ICD10 Diagnosis codes that are considered medical necessity for the CPT, relevant modifiers, indicators, E/M, etc.
apiDiagCodeDetails GET ICD10 Diagnosis code Details about the ICD10 Diagnosis code, relevant CPT codes and LCD for a specific jurisdiction.
apiProcCodeDetails GET ICD10 Procedure code Details about the ICD10 Procedure code.
apiLCDCodeDetails GET LCD code Details about the LCD code: CPT supporting it and their RVUs, ICD10 Diagnosis supporting medical necessity and ICD10 Diagnosis that explicitly do NOT support a CPT in a jurisdiction.
apiStaticModifiers GET Nothing Details about all the Modifiers, Indicators, Factors that impact fees, Anesthesia modifiers, etc.

Errors
Text2Codes will return an HTTP error when it encounters a problem processing your API call.
A more detailed message is provided in the HTTP error response body.

HTTP Error Error details you may find in the HTTP response
400 - Bad request Text for NLP analysis must have between 5 and 10,000 characters
Not a CPT code
Not an ICD10 Diagnosis code
Not an LCD code
Not an ICD10 Procedure code
The server cannot or will not process the request due to an apparent client error
401 - Unauthorized See Authentication
402 - Payment required Subscription expired.
Please renew your subscription at Text2Codes.com
You have passed the number of free text documents NLP analysis per day allowed by your current account settings.
