Product Description

Make sure you don't end up on the OIG's list of "error-prone" physicians. 

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.

This Session Will Answer:

  • What is the difference between modifier 25 and modifier 57?
  • Are there timelines associated with the use of these modifiers? What are they?
  • Is there a difference between CPT and CMS about how these modifiers should be used?
  • What do you need in your documentation that makes or breaks the reporting of these modifiers?
  • In what cases should you NOT use these modifiers?
  • PLUS: Takeaway reference materials you can use long after the conference.

Ask a question at the Q&A session following the live event and get advice unique to your situation, directly from our expert speaker. 

Who should attend? Billers, Coders, Administrators, Providers, Claims Managers, Reviewers, Appeals departments. Physician offices, outpatient facilities as well as inpatient facilities.
