3 Coding and Payment Guide for the Physical Therapist HCPCS Level II codes, published annually by CMS, are intended to supplement the CPT coding system by including codes for durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics, and supplies (DMEPOS); drugs; and biologicals. These Level II codes consist of one alphabetic character (A through V) followed by four numbers. In many instances, HCPCS Level II codes are developed as precursors to CPT codes. A complete list of the HCPCS Level II codes and the quarterly updates to this code set may be found at HCPCSReleaseCodeSets/02_HCPCS_Quarterly_Update.asp. Claim Forms Institutional (facility) providers use the UB-04 claim form, also known as the CMS-1450, to file a Medicare Part A claim to Medicare contractors for service providers in hospital outpatient settings or in the electronic format using the 837I format. Noninstitutional providers and suppliers (private practices or other health care providers offices) use the CMS-1500 form or the 837P electronic format to submit claims to Medicare contractors for Medicare Part B-covered services. Medicare Part A coverage includes inpatient hospital, skilled nursing facilities (SNF), hospice, and home health. Part A providers also include rehabilitation agencies and comprehensive outpatient rehabilitation facilities (CORF). Medicare Part B coverage provides payment for medical supplies, physician services, and outpatient services delivered in a private practice setting (PTPP). Not all services rendered by a facility are inpatient services. Providers working in facilities routinely render services on an outpatient basis. Outpatient services are provided in settings that include rehabilitation centers, certified outpatient rehabilitation facilities, SNFs, and hospitals. Outpatient and partial hospitalization facility claims might be submitted on either a CMS-1500 or a UB-04 depending on the payer. For professional component billing, most claims are filed using ICD-9-CM diagnosis code to indicate the reason for the service, CPT codes to identify the service provided, and HCPCS Level II codes to report supplies on the CMS-1500 paper claim or the 837P electronic format. Contents and Format of This Guide The Coding and Payment Guide for the Physical Therapist contains chapters that address payment, official Medicare regulatory information, and a glossary. Payment The first section of the guide provides comprehensive information about the coding and payment process. It contains four chapters: an introduction, The Payment Process, Documentation An Overview, and Claims Processing. These chapters are predominantly narrative in nature; however, the claims processing chapter provides step-by-step explanations to complete the CMS-1500 and UB-04 claim forms and a crosswalk for electronic submissions. Procedure Codes for Physical Therapists The next chapter, Procedure Codes, contains a numeric listing of procedure codes most commonly used by a physical therapist. Each page identifies the information associated with that procedure (or in Introduction some cases, related procedures) including an explanation of the service, coding tips, and associated diagnoses. Please note that this list of associated ICD-9-CM codes is not all inclusive. The procedure may be performed for reasons other than those listed that support the medical necessity of the service. Only those conditions supported by the medical record documentation should be reported. The procedure code page contains related terms and the CMS Manual System references that designate the official references to the service, which is identified by the procedure code and found in the online manual system. The full excerpt from the online CMS Manual System pertaining to the reference is provided in the Medicare official regulatory information appendix. The full text of all of the Internet-Only Manuals (IOM) may be found at Manuals/Internet-Only-Manuals-IOMs.html. The procedure code pages also have a list of codes from the official Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services National Correct Coding Policy Manual for Part B Medicare Contractors that are considered to be an integral part of the comprehensive or mutually exclusive coding system and should not be reported separately. Please note that the CCI edits will be updated quarterly and posted on Optum s website at Finally, all relative value information pertaining to the code is listed at the bottom of the page. Indexes and Appendix The chapter containing applicable procedure codes is followed by a procedure code index, an index of diagnosis codes commonly reported by physical therapists, and HCPCS Level II definitions and guidelines. An appendix, Medicare Official Regulatory Information, and a glossary follow. How to Use This Guide The chapters: The Payment Process, Documentation An Overview, and Claims Processing may be read in their entirety and/or used as references. When using this Coding and Payment Guide for code assignment, follow these important steps to improve accuracy and experience fewer overlooked diagnoses and services: Step 1. Carefully read the medical record documentation that describes the patient s diagnosis and the service provided. Remember, more than one diagnosis or service may be documented. Step 2. Locate the main term for the procedure or service documented in the CPT index. This will identify the procedure code that may be used to report this service. Step 3. Locate the procedure code in the chapter titled Procedure Codes. Read the explanation and determine if that is the procedure performed and supported by the medical record documentation. The Terms to Know section may be used ensure appropriate code assignment. Step 4. At this time, review the additional information pertinent to the specific code found in the coding tips, IOM reference, and CCI sections or the Medicare physician fee schedule references. Step 5. Peruse the list of ICD-9-CM codes to determine if the condition documented in the medical record is listed and the code identified. If the condition is not listed refer to the 2012 OptumInsight, Inc.

4 Procedure Codes Needle electromyography; thoracic paraspinal muscles (excluding T1 or T12) limited study of muscles in 1 extremity or non-limb (axial) muscles (unilateral or bilateral), other than thoracic paraspinal, cranial nerve supplied muscles, or sphincters Explanation Needle electromyography (EMG) records the electrical properties of thoracic paraspinal muscles, excluding T1 or T12 (95869) using an oscilloscope. Recordings, which may be amplified and heard through a loudspeaker, are made during needle insertion, with the muscle at rest, and during contraction. Report for a limited study of muscles in one extremity or non-limb (axial) muscles other than thoracic paraspinal or cranial supplied muscles or sphincters. s Code should be used to report a needle EMG study of a limb that has fewer than five muscles tested per limb. Report this code once, or once per each extremity examined. Append modifier 59 Distinct procedural service, to any subsequent codes reported. Report once when performed on the thorax or abdomen, regardless of if the study is performed bilaterally. When performed on the cervical or lumbar paraspinal muscles, report only once regardless of the number of levels examined or if performed bilaterally. When no nerve conduction studies are performed on the same date of service, the appropriate EMG code ( and ) should be reported. To report nerve conduction studies, see Do not report code in addition to code 95860, 95861, 95863, or since the testing of paraspinal muscles corresponding to an extremity are included in these codes. However, when a different limb is tested, append modifier 59 Distinct procedural service, to indicate the involvement of the second limb. Physical therapists in private practice may bill for the technical and professional component of certain diagnostic tests in the code range, such as electromyograms and nerve conduction studies. These codes have both a technical and professional component. To report only the professional component, append modifier 26. To report only the technical component, append modifier TC. To report the complete procedure (i.e., both the professional and technical components), submit without a modifier. The professional component is covered by Medicare as outpatient physical therapy when performed by a PT who meets the following criteria: 1) The PT is certified by the American Board of Physical Therapist Specialties (ABPTS) as a clinical electrophysiologic-certified specialist 2) The PT is personally supervised by an ABPTS-certified PT; only the certified PT may bill for the service Medicare will permit a PT without ABPTS certification to provide certain electromyography services if that PT was not ABPTS-certified as of July 1, 2001, and had been furnishing such diagnostic tests prior to May 1, The requirements vary depending on the CPT code billed. Some third-party payers, such as Medicare, reimburse only for the technical portion of many procedures whose codes are in this subsection of the CPT book. It is important for each therapist to determine how insurers require physical therapists to bill services. Therapists should keep track of experiences with each insurance company and policy, providing data for future claims. Single-fiber EMG testing is the innervation of one or more nerve cells and some of the muscles stimulated. Code describes testing of each muscle studied. Normally, 20 pairs of nerves must be studied to significantly study each muscle. Each muscle is coded only once. However, if another muscle is studied, then the code is reported again. These codes can be used in addition to the standard evaluation. Terms To Know electromyography. (EMG). Examining and recording the electrical activity of a muscle. technical component. Portion of a health care service that identifies the provision of the equipment, supplies, technical personnel, and costs attendant to the performance of the procedure other than the professional services.

The sling, however, is not included in the global package for fracture care. Some contractors will pay for this additional patient care item; some will not. If the provider ordered the sling secondary to high probability of patient self-harm with a flailing, casted limb, or if the patient is a child who requires immobilization of the casted limb to avert further injury, reimbursement may be considered by some contractors. Clear evidence of these situations must be reflected in the medical documentation and should be submitted with the claim. In any case, it would be prudent to secure an advance beneficiary notice of noncoverage (ABN) from the patient in case a medical necessity denial is received.
