Physical therapy/chiropractic codes

  1. Default Physical therapy/chiropractic codes
    Medical Coding Books
    Hi everyone, we have a DPT working in our office now. Billing under MD, can the PT use code 98940, listed under chiropractic section. Does anyone know if the codes for chiropractors are allowed to be billed as a physical therapist service? thanks

    No, a licensed physical therapist can only bill under the PT codes (97001-
    97799). The chiropractic physician can only bill under the codes 98940-43.

    Our chiropractor is licensed to perform Physical Therapy in this state(although he is not a "Licensed Physical Therapist"). He can and does bill out PT codes when/if he performs physical therapy services.
