Thread: Evaluation for wheelchair

  1. #1

    Default Evaluation for wheelchair

    AAPC: Back to School
    Our Ortho doc is going to do an evaluation on a patient to determine the need for a wheelchair. I have searched high and low and still have not come up with an ICD-9 or a CPT that would work for this type of visit. Can anyone shed some light on this for me?

    Possibly 97542? -Wheelchair mgmt (assessment, fitting, training) each 15 minutes-

    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).

    Thank you very much. That gives me some direction.
