Thread: Physical Therapy Med. B home visit billing

    Default Physical Therapy Med. B home visit billing

    AAPC: Back to School
    When billing for home visits provided under Med B, is it advisable to use the diagnosis V code V57.1 for an encounter for Physical Therapy - I use the modifier GP already. Thank you.

    V57.x codes are all first-listed only allowed. Aslo according to coding guidelines when a patent has an encounter/visit/admission for rehab purposes the V57.x is required and must be first listed. So to answer your question... Yes.
