Understanding Codes For Physical Therapy And Chiropractic Billing

Medical billing may seem to some to be an incredibly daunting task. There are so many codes, numbers, terms, and phrases to familiarize yourself with, all of which are important if you want a successful billing process for your services. This is especially true in the world of Physical Therapy and Chiropractic Billing.

With Physical Therapy billing, there are two groups of codes.

The International Classification of Diseases (ICD): Make sure you’re using the most up-to-date version of these codes, which is used to diagnose a patient’s condition in a way that proves that the services and treatment rendered are.

The Current Procedural Terminology (CPT): This set of codes are the most widely used medical codes, and are important for reporting treatments, procedures, and services under health insurance programs, both private and public.

The number of codes in use may seem intimidating, but it is important to stay updated on them and to make sure you are being as specific as possible when billing for Physical Therapy treatment and services. When used properly, they will help you to successfully bill for your services.

When it comes to Chiropractic billing, things become a bit more complicated. Many insurance providers will at least partially cover the cost of chiropractic care, but you must have a full understanding of the codes being used in order to ensure no confusion throughout the billing process.

You must familiarize yourself with a whole new range of CPT codes, the most common of which are Chiropractic Manipulation Treatment (CMT) codes. If it was important to use proper billing codes when dealing with Physical Therapy treatment, it is even more imperative in Chiropractic billing.
