    Default CPT Code for Crutches Training
    Medical Coding Books
    I have a question about ambulation training with crutches. Is this something that can be billed by the medical provider (or RN as incident to physician service)? If so, is there a CPT code and when can it be used?

    I would check out 97116, it is a timed code so it can not be incident to.
