One of my therapists performed a suboccipital myofacial release with a patient for 10 minutes and charged for manual therapy (97140). Then she gave the patient mechanical traction for 15 minutes and charged 97012.
It’s my understanding that you’re not supposed to code 97140 with 97012 -- so what is the correct way to bill this session? Would it be appropriate to bill two units of 97012 or 97140? Or should we just bill 97140 for one unit and not bill for the mechanical traction time?
