Medical billing and coding is a necessary process for both medical and holistic practices looking to be reimbursed for services.

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

Are you looking for ways to maximize your insurance reimbursement?

Medical billing and coding is a necessary process for both medical and holistic practices looking to be reimbursed for services.

Acupuncture billing practices are not the same as traditional medical billing and have a different set of requirements. Acupuncture billing uses its own unique set of codes.

Acupuncture services are coded in 15-minute increments, so one code is used for the initial 15 minutes of service and then a separate code for additional units of time. Acupuncture CPT codes only vary if electronic stimulation is included in treatment.

Many of the services acupuncture practices bill to insurance for treatments fall under the following codes:

Initial Acupuncture. Code: 97810.
Subsequent Unit of Acupuncture. Code 97811.
Initial Acupuncture with Electrical Stimulation. Code 97813.
Subsequent Unit of Acupuncture with Electrical Stimulation. Code 97814.

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.
