Are you prepared for the increased audit activity of Modifier -25? Some private payers are sending warning letters to providers who bill E/M codes with modifiers significantly more than their peers. Carriers do not pay for an E/M service reported with a procedure having a global fee period without a modifier appended to the E/M service. You’ll agree if you have seen the latest settlements related to Modifier -25.
Increasing claim denials, wasted follow-up time, revenue loss, and OIG investigations are some of the potential consequences of inappropriate use of Modifiers.
Join Elin Baklid-Kunz, MBA, CHC, CPC, CCS, in this 60 minutes webinar where she will provide you insights on how to prevent reduced payments and denials, and how to combat increased government scrutiny. Elin will offer tips on how to be in compliance and ensure correct payment. She’ll also help you understand what to look for when auditing, using actual medical record examples in this 60 minute audio session.
