    Default 97010

    Has anyone heard that code 97010 has now been replaced by a G code? A peer states that she was told that 97010 is no longer billable

    According to the 2010 CPT book, 97010 is still a valid code. Medicare sometimes requires a G code in place of a CPT code, but I have not seen anything yet on this particular code, but I could have missed it.

    97014=G0283 and more and more companies are going to this code however, I have not heard that the 97010 has been replaced. We bill this every day and have not seen one denial yet. It is not payable by workers' compensation carriers however.
