    I just took over billing for Physical Therapy. It seems for the PT office, M/C doesn’t like to pay for 97032 when we bill it with 97140, 97035, & G0283. I believe it is butting with the 97140.. But do you know if I need to be adding a modifier to the 97032 to get M/C to pay?

    I just took over billing for a Chiro office and some ins companies are not wanting to pay the 97140 when it is billed with 98940/98941.. I add modifier 59 but some still do not want to pay. I have read many things stating it is allowed to be billed together and many things saying it is not payable together within the visit. The Chiro is performing these codes to separate areas and that is shown with the separate dx that are attached to each code but it still is a hit and miss whether it is paid or not and the Chiro is positive they both should be paid…. Help!
