Self-Care/Home Management Training (CPT code 97535)


This procedure is medically necessary only when it requires the professional skills of a therapist, is designed to address specific needs of the patient, and is part of an active treatment plan directed at a specific outcome.

The patient must have a condition for which training in activities of daily living is medically reasonable and necessary, and such training must be reasonably expected to restore or improve the functioning of the patient.

The patient must have the capacity to learn from instructions.

Services provided concurrently by physicians, optometrists, physical therapists, and occupational therapists may be covered if separate and distinct goals are documented in the treatment plans.
