Acupuncture: A chiropractic provider may not provide acupuncture services until certified by the Florida Board of Chiropractic Medicine. Acupuncture is reported based on 15 minute increments of personal (face-to-face) contact with the patient, not the duration of acupuncture needle(s) placement. If no electrical stimulation is used during a 15 minute increment, use 97810 or 97811. If electrical stimulation of any needle is used during a 15 minute increment, use 97813 or 97814. Only one code may be reported for each 15 minute increment. Use either 97810 or 97813 for the initial 15 minute increment. Only one initial code is reported per day.
The FEP does not include benefits for acupuncture when performed by a chiropractor.
