Default Chiropractor billing kinesio taping

Does anyone know if chiropractors can bill for kinesio taping or do they have to be certified?

Thanks!

Our office has been billing 97139 for Kinesio tape...if the Dr was certified to tape would this then be a covered service?

Thanks!

Sorry to disagree here, but the strapping codes are not usable for kinesio taping. The March 2012 CPT assistant has a terrific article on this. Basically states the strapping codes are for immobilization of the joints (think shoulder strapping or wrapping of the ribs/thorax). Simple kinesiotaping (using of tape to restrict or assist in the movement of particular muscle groups) would be considered as part of either 97110 or 97112. If only providing taping services, it may be best to only charge for the supply itself. Also, if you can find a copy of the American Chiropractic Association's (ACA) public guidelines from 2014, they also back this idea. Hope this helps
