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

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?
