ICD 9 codes for PT

  1. Default ICD 9 codes for PT
    Medical Coding Books
    I'm new to physical therapy coding and am being told that all physical and occupational therapy charges have to be billed with more than one ICD 9 code. Is this true and if so, can someone offer some guidance?

    In the ICD-9 CM guidelines in the front of your book look under general guidelines, number 15 encounters for rehab. The first listed dx code for rehab encounters is required to be V57.- for PT it will be V57.1. This is a first listed only allowed code. The secondary code will be the reason for rehab.
