Hi!
My PT biller is out this week and I've noticed she's been billing the following the following for a single PT visit:

97140-59
97110
97026
97014
97010

According to CCI, however, I cannot find evidence of why -59 is being affixed to the 99140. Am I missing something? I know if it's done on the same day as a chiropractic service, the -59 should be used, but if just these five CPTs are billed, do we need it?

Thanks

No CCI edits that I see there. 59 should not be used unless there is a specific edit, and only when it qualifies for it.

That's what I was thinking.
If CMT was done on the same day, it would be accurate to -59 the 97140, yes? On account of 97140 + 98941 being billed together.
