Does the Medicare program pay for CPT code 97750 (physical performance test or measurement) the same day a provider also bills either a physical therapy (PT) evaluation, PT reevaluation, occupational therapy (OT) evaluation, or OT reevaluation CPT code? Of course, the answer is not as easy as a simple yes or a simple no. A certain situation must occur that will allow CPT code 97750 to be paid on the same day as a PT or OT evaluation or reevaluation CPT code. So you might ask, what is that situation?
The Medicare program will pay for CPT code 97750 on the same date of service as a physical therapy evaluation/re-evaluation CPT code (e.g. 97161-97164) or occupational therapy evaluation/reevaluation CPT code (e.g. 97165-97168) when the two services are performed
