For example, “We have had reports that insurance companies are denying our patients the code 97110 [Therapeutic Exercise] because it’s supposedly only for Physical Therapy,” says Zelasko.
Morrison explains further that “Zelasko believes these issues began after Affordable Care Act (ACA) changes were implemented. The use of this code, he says, is not limited to physical therapy but is treated differently by some companies.”
