New CCI Edits!!

Effective January 1, 2020

Physical and Occupational therapy when providing an initial evaluation you cannot provide therapeutic activities (code 97530 ) and  therapeutic procedures, group, 2 or more individuals  (code 97150) during the same visit.

When providing manual therapy (code 97140) you must include a 59 modifier.  The modifier that’s used to indicate that a code represents a service that is separate and distinct from another service to which it is paired.
