Thread: Physical Therapy Biofeedback

    Default Physical Therapy Biofeedback

    AAPC: Back to School
    When a biofeedback unit is used during therapeutic exercises at a physical therapy session, can you code both 97110 (therapeutic exercises) and 90901 (biofeedback, any modality)?

    I checked CCI edits and there are none. So apparently you can.

    Default Biofeedback

    Hello there:

    Yes, these can be billed at the same time. You know how they say, billing and coding generally have some differences... well... in the world of billing, a 59 modifier needs to be on any of the NON-biofeedback codes, in your example 97110. Payers will deny without that.

    Hope that helps...

    Default 90901 Bio FeedBack

    Physical Therapy:
    Anyone else having problems with Biofeedback 90901 or 90911 paying with other codes when using the 59 modifier on the (NON-Biofeedback code)?
    For example the payors only paying for one of the codes even with the 59 modifer.
    Also - 90911 is Non-Timed, 90901 is Timed.
    My question is I have seen some documentation that 90901 was changed in mid-2011.
    Does anyone else know about that?
    Thank you for your time and input.
