Product Description

Modifiers Can Be Your Financial Friends! It Helps Reduce Your Audit Risk and Improve Reimbursements.

Applying modifiers correctly is not a cut and dry process. Time and again providers inappropriately use modifiers that lead to claim denials. A modifier is an essential tool in the coding process as they clarify how services should be paid for and describe a procedure code without changing its definition.

In this 60-minute webinar, Terry Fletcher will discuss the new HCPCS Modifier 59 Subsets and their impact. She will provide tools to make the 22 modifier work for you, and show you how you can make the 25 modifier your financial friend. Terry will shed light on the benefit of information modifiers vs. payment modifiers while providing clarification on the professional 26 modifier.
