PT Codes for Online Digital Visits

PT Codes for Online Digital Visits

April 2, 2020

Question:
I am a PT with an NPI. Since I can bill under my name which codes do I use for Online Digital Visits?

Answer:

Physical therapists should use the e-visit codes (98970-98972 or for Medicare use G2061-G2063). Although PTs do have an NPI, they do no bill E/M visits so (99421-99423) should not be billed.

Some commercial payors are allowing therapy services to be billed under the telehealth waiver. Check with your commercial payors regarding these rules.
