Yes, you may append modifier KX to CPT codes 76815 and 76816.

If your health insurance is maxed out, you may be able to qualify for government sponsored coverage to continue with necessary treatments.

You could also contact your insurance company and ask them what provisions they may have to get around the limitations. You may have to pay higher copays or forgo all but the necessary treatments, but it may still be possible to continue using your health coverage.
