Ensure the documentation listing and describing body part, laterality, right, left ETC and type of cold pack, massage, treatment done and sign med record. Alos add the referring doctor if one send pt. there for PT treatment. But the provider needs to list the minutes done on each body area. Also modifiers of GO and GN are used for phys therapy providers technician (GN) and licensed MD (GO) but check with payers. If an injury put DOI (date of injury) location and how it happen. If a worker comp claim, ensure get approval numbers put on claim.
