What CPT CODE is used to bill for Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression adjusting?

Cox® Technic is chiropractic spinal manipulation which is easily recognized as the 98940 series of codes depending on the number of regions treated....98941, 98942. The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) coding and billing guidelines state this as well, 'that flexion-distraction is spinal manipulation' and coded as such.
 
IF THE DOCTOR is using a newer model of the Cox® Table (7 or 8)...the 97012 UNASSISTED TRACTION code could be used since the newer tables can be programmed to automatically axially distract a patient for a period of time. Such billing would be for a separate session of unassisted traction following or in advance of the spinal manipulation using Cox Technic protocols.
