If the news that Medicare will cover acupuncture for chronic low back pain piqued your interest, review the guidelines for dry needling and acupuncture codes.

In the current issue of Part B News we talk about best practices for handling potential or confirmed cases of COVID19 — AKA novel coronavirus — in your office. But is there also a role for telehealth in this intervention? Samant Virk, M.D., founder & CEO of MediSprout, a healthcare and telehealth solutions company in Valhalla, N.Y., says there is, and explains it for us:
When you encounter vaping-related injury or illness cases in a clinical setting, you are to report the new emergency vaping code, U07.0 as the primary diagnosis, according to newly issued tabular guidance for the code from the ICD-10-CM Coordination and Maintenance Committee.
Physician practices will now be reimbursed by Medicare for acupuncture services when provided for chronic low back pain, according to a national coverage determination issued Jan. 21.
