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.
