    We are a freestanding outpatient rehab facility. We have a patient that is coming for a wheelchair assessment. What is the appropriate CPT codes to use. Is it 97001 and 97542? Any help will be much appreciated!

    97542=The health care provider assesses the patient for the type and size of a wheelchair or trains the patient in the proper wheelchair skills (e.g., propulsion, safety techniques).
