Acupuncture Billing Codes overview
You may be wondering “Where can I find the right acupuncture CPT codes to use?” At Holistic Billing Services, we know this is a common concern when getting started if you’re an acupuncture provider who’s new to insurance billing.
We believe these codes are bones that most insurance will pay, distributed by the three main sources of profit for your practice acupuncture treatments, office visits, and physical remedy-grounded treatments.
Acupuncture Treatment Billing Services codes: –
acupuncture insurance billing are always enciphered in 15- nanosecond supplements, so you'll use one law for the original 15 twinkles of service and also a separate law for fresh units of time. Acupuncture CPT Codes will only vary if you include electronic stimulation in your treatment. Numerous of the services you'll bill to insurance for acupuncture treatments will fall under the following four codes:
Acupuncture Initial code 97810:
original 15- nanosecond insertion of needles and particular one-on-one contact with the case. ( Tip don't report this in confluence with 97813; use one or the other.)
Posterior Unit of Acupuncture
Use one unit per each fresh 15 twinkles of particular one-on-one contact with the case after the original 15 twinkles, with-insertion of needles. ( You may use it in confluence with either 97810 or 97813.)
Original Acupuncture with Electrical Simulation
Original 15- nanosecond insertion of needles, particularly one-on-one contact with the case. ( Tip don't report in conjunction with 97810; use one or the other.)
posterior Unit of Acupuncture with Electrical Stimulation
Use one unit per each fresh 15 twinkles of particular one-on-one contact with the case, with-insertion of needles. ( You may use it in confluence with either 97810 or 97813.)
Office Visit Billing
Office visits (or evaluation and operation services) can be billed on the original case evaluation and follow-up evaluations later. A good rule of thumb is every 30 days or every sixth visit. Be sure not to bill these canons every time the case receives acupuncture treatments because acupuncture canons 97810, 97813, 97811, and 97814 are intended to include evaluation and operation as part of the overall diurnal treatment.
