97760 orthotic training

Best answers
We have in our orthopedic office, a company that provides our braces and also does the fitting at the time of the visit, i.e. knee braces, wrist splints, post op shoes, etc.

My doctor wants to me to bill 97760 which would represent his time in instruction, training and explanation of orthotic wearing time, and the fact that he has ordered this orthotic for the patient and the medial need for such.
Is this a valid code to be billing for the "doctor's" time, even though he didn't provide for or fit the orthotic.

Would appreciate a response on this billing procedure and/or any information I might access regarding the billing of 97760.

Thanks in advance,
