The chiropractic roller table should be reported with code…
Can use of a chiropractic roller table be reported as manual traction, CPT code 97012?
According to the journal Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation as of July 2020, the chiropractic roller table does not meet the requirements of auto traction billed as code 97012.
The chiropractic roller table should be reported with code 97039, Unlisted modality (specify type and time if constant attendance).
Remember, when reporting an unlisted code to describe a procedure or service, submit supporting documents along with the claim to provide an adequate description of the nature, extent, and need for the procedure, as well as the time, effort, and equipment necessary to provide the service.
