Are there any alternatives for code 97112 Neuromuscular Re-education? This code is counted toward both Chiropractic and Physical Therapy visits with BCBS, and we want to preserve the insurance benefits.
In a sense, no CPT codes have an alternative. Each code describes a specific service and you would only use a different code if you were performing a different service. You cannot continue to do the same procedure and just change the code. Make sure you know when each code should be used and how they are defined. See chapter 5.2 of the 2017 ChiroCode DeskBook for tips and tricks on the most common CPT codes used in chiropractic. Review the codes from 971-- to 975-- for other services related to 97112.
