CPT™ 2017 deletes the existing therapy evaluation codes (97001 – 97004) and creates eight new CPT codes to describe the evaluation procedures furnished by physical therapists, occupational therapists and athletic trainers.
There are three new codes choices to replace each deleted evaluation code plus another one for re-evaluation procedures by each provider discipline.
Drug Testing also has changed “again” and Medicare coding for your therapy claims is now more complicated than ever. Join Dr Ramsdell as he discusses PT/OT/AT therapy specific evaluation guidelines, components, definitions and documentation requirements. This training also includes a special “total coding look” at your Medicare therapy claims to help you code with needed modifiers; functional capacity, severity reporting codes and avoid denials and future CMS “penalties”.
