Thanks for your question. When billing 97001; Physical therapy evaluation the appropriate modifier to use is GP- Services delivered under an outpatient physical therapy plan of care. If you are billing 97001 with treatment codes, re-bill with a modifier 59- distinct procedural service. Hope this helps.
