If you're worried that appending modifiers 25 and 59 to your claims might spark a federal audit, you're absolutely correct. At the end of 2005, the HHS OIG warned CMS that physician practices are misusing 25 and 59, and the federal watchdog agency is still on the lookout for providers that run afoul of modifier rules. However, if you're so worried about a federal audit that you neglect to use modifiers when they're appropriate, your practice will lose big on the reimbursement. Don't be afraid of 25 and 59. Instead, learn the rules so you can append with confidence.
Find what the OIG has been flagging, and make sure your practice is following proper modifier guidelines by joining nationally-known coding and billing expert Steven M. Verno, CMMC, CMMB, NREMTP. In this critical audioconference you’ll learn what not to do with modifiers 25 and 59 AND you’ll walk away with the confidence of when you can use them for better reimbursement.
Here's a sampling of what you'll learn:
