    Has anyone ever billed/ coded for animal assisted therapy?
    Is there an actual CPT code for it?
    Would it be considered a modality, 97532?

    Thanks a million

    Is there a CPT or HCPCS code for animal assisted therapy?
    Does anyone have experience coding for this?
    Are there documentation guidelines?

    Thanks so much for your time,

    We just had a provider today ask us about this...so came on here to see if anyone has asked or answered this question.

    Did you get an answer?

    Hi Kilokilo,

    Actually, I did today

    Use 90899 because there is no specific CPT code for this yet.

    Hope this helps, even though this is an unlisted CPT code.

    I just joined this BH thread. I work in the world of military medicine and the BH coding is huge. We asked about animal therapy a while back but it never dawned on us to use this unlisted code. Thanks for that!
