    Question Occupational Therapy Help Needed

    AAPC: Back to School

    I need some help and resources for coding Occupational Therapy. I know the conventions for physical therapy, but have never done occupational therapy. Any input or suggestions would be most appreciated. - Maybe some web sites or books? Thanks!

    GO Modifier is used for Medicare as GP is used for PT. It is pretty much the same as PT. Same codes. Just check out each health plan to see if they cover it. They do not have to be capped for Keystone since there are not a lot of OTs. There is only a list of dx they will pay for. I just verified each plan before I billed it when I started out 11 years ago.

    Hope this helps,

    Kim, CPC
