Manipulation Coding


Best answers
Our surgeon took a patient into the OR to do a manipulation of a frozen shoulder under anesthetic. However once the patient was under the shoulder ROM was not decreased or restricted in any fashion. He states that it moved easily through the range of motion. Do you think a manipulation should be billed and with what diagnosis? Thanks!:confused:
