CPT code 97033 specifically described iontophoresis. However, some providers may code for iontophoresis using CPT code 97039, Unlisted modality.

Codes Number Description

CPT 97033 Iontophoresis, each 15 minutes
97035 ultrasound, each 15 minutes

ICD-9 Procedure 99.27 Iontophoresis
Type of Service : Physical Therapy
Place of Service : Outpatient; Physical Therapy

We got denied by insurance for CPT 97033. It says " CPT code must be reported with therapeutic procedure".
What is that code?
