Welcome to your billing and coding weekly solutions by H.J.Ross Company where getting your bills paid is what we do best!

Are you finding the 9894X series codes (Chiropractic Manipulation Therapy/Adjustment) confusing?

It is important to know how to correctly report the segments adjusted and the use of the appropriate CPT codes for insurance reimbursement.

The chiropractic adjustment to the areas or regions must fall into the following classifications written in the CPT manual:

The cervical spine includes the atlanto-occipital area.
The thoracic spine includes the costovetebral and costotransverse area (rib heads).
The sacral region includes the coccyx. These areas are not considered an extra spinal, so if adjusted, they do not qualify as a 98943 (extra spinal adjustment).

Billing with incorrect chiropractic CPT codes can lead to claim rejections and delays in payments, which can have a devastating impact on generating revenue and keeping you in business.
