CodeMap® Compliance Briefing: 8/10/2007

 


Editor's Welcome:

In recent weeks, we have received numerous questions concerning procedure code modifiers. Procedure code modifiers are two character additions to procedure codes that help to communicate further information to health care payers. The additional characters are affixed to the end of standard procedures codes, either CPT or HCPCS, and are often overlooked by providers. However, participation in federally funded health care programs, as well as many private health plans, requires providers to appropriately use modifiers when submitting claims. Because of the large number of inquiries we have received, today's CodeMap Compliance Briefing will review the more common modifiers that often accompany claims for diagnostic procedures. As always, please forward any further questions, comments, and/or suggestions via email. 

Sincerely,

Gregory Root, Esq.
