Using modifiers incorrectly can result in fines, penalties, or even worse - "intent." For the past 5+ years, the Office of Inspector General has scrutinized the overuse and inappropriate use of modifiers 25 and 57. That spells trouble for you and your practice unless you're using them accurately 100% of the time.
Don't let these modifiers jeopardize your compliance OR your reimbursements. Join our coding specialist Margie Scalley Vaught for this 60-minute session, where you'll learn the key phrases and questions that should be asked before you use these modifiers.
Plus, you'll view "official source" examples of when it's appropriate to append and use modifiers 25 and 57. Black-and-white guidelines from both CPT/AMA and CMS/CCI will be yours for the taking.
