I have billed in the past on the same date of service, CPT code 97116 PT (Gait training therapy),  and CPT code 97530 (functional activities) and both were reimbursable.  However, the past two months 97116 was denied saying "not a separately reimbursable service or supply.  Supply codes should be submitted with HCPCS codes".  97116 is not a supply code, but there must be some change that I'm unaware of, or maybe I should be using a different code.  Ins. Company says they are reprocessing, but still not sure they will pay.   I would send a corrected claim, if I knew what to correct.  Can someone help me?
