Hi Liz,

I am only familiar with Reflexology codes in the form of ABC codes, but don't know the actual codes, just of their existence. I do hope someone has an answer for you!

A thought, what about calling the insurance company? For instance, Aetna and Blue Cross have a provider's contact number, they might be able to assist you.

Good luck!

Amy,

Thanks! I'm very aware of the ABC codes and yes there are CPT and other Insurance codes for Reflexology. I've seen them but it has been awhile. Just wish I could remember where. Need to be able to add them to my Massage Super bill. If anyone comes across such please send my way.

Thanks again!

Liz,

I found this at http://www.auriculotherapy.com/faqs.html#prc2 it is targeted more towards ear acupuncture then ear reflexology, but I don't see it as a stretch to call reflexology by the name neuro-stimulation, but I'm not an insurance person.

"Whether auriculotherapy treatments are reimbursed health care providers or HMO's depends both upon the type of license of the practitioner and health insurance coverage of the client. When billed as applied neurostimulation (CPT Code 97118) as part of a regular office visit, many health insurance agencies will accept auriculotherapy as a form of TENS (transcutaenous electrical nerve stimulation). Only some health insurance companies accept auriculotherapy when billed as a form of acupuncture"

Hi,
This is a great quote.

Auriculotherapy is a modality all of its own. It includes the use of electrical instruments, probes and needles. Both theory and application differ from Ear Reflexology.

The "History of Ear Reflexology" is outlined in this article.

I don't know that this helps, but there is a CPT code for "Unlisted Therapeutic Proceedure" - 97139 (now that is from a 1997 Code book I have, but I looked it up online and it still seems to be applicable).

I am not sure if one needs to be an MD or DC in order to utilize this code. What I do read with it: "The physician or therapist is required to have direct (one on one) patient contact."
