How to get cpt code 97010 paid when billed with CMT cpt codes 98940-98942?

In my recent findings, i have come across that the ACA has a scientifically based policy that supports the use of hot/cold packs in cases of patient medical necessity. The policy states: “It is the position of the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) that the work of hot/cold packs as described by CPT code 97010 is not included in the CMT (Chiropractic Manipulative Treatment ) CPT codes 98940-98942 in instances when moist heat or cryotherapy is medically necessary in order to achieve a specific physiological effect that is thought to be beneficial to the patient.. So is it possible for us to bill the hot and cold packs 97010 with the modifier GP to avoid bunding issues and get the code paid or is there any other way of billing?
