When doing acupuncture is electric moxa considered electric stimulation or is it acupuncture with electric stimulation how would the coding books qualify it?

Even though Moxibustion is considered complimentary forms of treatment and are commonly used together, we cannot consider electric moxa as electric stimulation as there is no separate guideline for this as per coding point of view; It should be acupuncture with electric stimulation and you can refer code range 97810-97814
