Welcome to your billing and coding weekly solutions by American Acupuncture Council Network (AAC).

Why are CPT and ICD codes so important for the acupuncture profession? According to the Traditional Medicine Reference Group for the World Health Organization (WHO) for ICD-11, “For acupuncture to count, it must be accounted for.”

So when acupuncture providers assign both diagnosis and CPT codes to each client/patient, data and outcomes can be detailed and followed.

Here are 3 reasons why ICD-10 codes are important and used:
Accuracy of diagnosis in medical records affects patient management and medical necessity.
Insurance reimbursement for diagnostic testing and treatments is linked to ICD-10 coding.
Researchers can use these codes to track the incidence and prevalence of each diagnosis, and to assist with outcomes research.

And as an AAC Network member you will know exactly which codes to use and when.

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