The PT treated the existing patient for a new body. Would this be billed as a re-evaluation:97002 or an initial visit:97001?

Thank you!!

Evaluations and re-evaluations—Evaluations include assessment and documentation of the patient’s history, level of function, systems review, specific tests and measures, diagnosis, and prognosis. Unique evaluation and re-evaluation codes are used for physical therapists (CPT codes 97001 and 97002). Since it is a new body code it to 97001
