Product Description

Think you don't need a modifier? Think again! Discover commonly overlooked opportunities that drain facilities' dollars.

Modifiers can make a huge difference for your claims! The problem is, facility modifiers are a different animal than the ones individual departments and physicians use -- and many coders are passing up opportunities to get their health system the revenue it deserves.

Don't let another deserved dollar slip out the door because of a missing modifier. Join expert speaker Dorothy D. Steed, CPC-H-I, CHCC, CPUM, CPUR, ACS-OP, CCS-P, RCC, RMC, CPC-E/M, CPC-FP, CPAR, for this 1-hour audioconference where you'll both learn correct usage and uncover hidden opportunities for facility modifiers. You'll walk away with fresh knowledge to code each claim in your billing queue with confidence -- and bring in the highest reimbursement you ethically can.

Here’s a sampling of the details you’ll learn:

  • 3 Questions to ask that help you determine if a modifier will be necessary.
  • Review the handful of modifiers used only by facilities.
  • Why you can't use modifier 51 for multiple procedures -- and what you should use instead.
  • What not using valid modifiers can do your bottom line ... and when it's worth appealing.
  • Hidden opportunities for modifiers. Make sure you're checking out the departmental level.
  • Types of modifiers: Get the lowdown on Category I and HCPCS Category II.
  • Does your facility own an ambulance service? Here's a modifier usage you don't want to miss.
  • Yes, you can use modifier 25 in a facility! See how the ED and clinics often leave money on the table.
