Thread: Crutch training

    Default Crutch training

    AAPC: Back to School
    I've been coding the pro side for years, but am new to doing the facility side too. My question is -can you code for crutch training, 997761 on the facility side when the ED RN does the training? The no "incident to" rule in the ED has me confused about this.
    thanks for any input.

    There is no CPT code for crutch training, it's in the E/M.
