CPT Coding Update: Checkout for Orthotic
There is a new CPT code for 2018. Anyone who uses Durable Medical Equipment, including Orthotics, and has billed for a “check-out” where the patient ran into a problem and required your attention, or that you re-checked the usage, fit, etc. Delete your Orthotics Check-Out Code effective December 31, 2017: 97762 Checkout for orthotic/prosthetic use, established patient, each 15 minutes.
Replace it with this new code, effective January 1, 2018: 97763 Orthotic(s)/prosthetic(s) management and/or training, upper extremity(ies), lower extremity(ies), and/or trunk, subsequent orthotic(s)/prosthetic(s) encounter, each 15 minutes.
