Title: Alternative Medical Practices
Post by: ste on February 17, 2010, 06:56:23 PM
Moxibustion, Cupping, and Gua Sha are treatment techniques used in message therapy. Are there CPT codes which work best for these procedures?

At this time the AMA does not have any CPT codes specifically for moxibustion, cupping and gua sha.  You have to use one of the physical medicine codes that best describes the treatment, or the unlisted physical medicine code 97799 and attach a description.
