    Default 97110 & 97112

    AAPC: Back to School
    can codes 97110 & 97112 be coded on the same visit? if so, is 59 needed?

    Not really my area however if both services are performed it appears appropriate, in addition there is no edit that would require appending modifier -59.

    97110 Therapeutic procedure, 1 or more areas, each 15 minutes; therapeutic
    exercises to develop strength and endurance,range of motion
    and flexibility

    97112 neuromuscular reeducation of movement, balance,
    coordination, kinesthetic sense, posture, and/or
    proprioception for sitting and/or standing activities

    Hope this helps,

    You would need the mod-59 on 97112 so that they know it is a different 15-minute time period than the 97110, otherwise they will bundle the codes.
