Dry Needling

September 10, 2015

We are receiving conflicting information on the correct coding for a “dry needling” procedure. Is it possible that Mary LeGrand can answer this question for us?

Thank you for reaching out to KZA for your coding needs. We are not surprised that confusion exists related to this procedure. The correct code for this procedure is an unlisted code: Unlisted procedure, musculoskeletal system, general. Remember to check payor policies and Medicare LCDs as this may be a non-covered service.
