Product Description

Review of Most Common Procedure and E&M Codes that Uses Modifiers


The primary purpose of modifiers is to denote circumstances which affect the performance of a procedure or service. They are also used to provide supportive information, such as a second surgical opinion provided at the request of a professional review organization.

However, modifier usage at times can get complicated. For example, if a physician performs a procedure bilaterally, and the procedure is listed in CPT® as unilateral, a normally simple procedure becomes unusually complicated just because the patient suffers from diabetes.

Whether you are new to modifiers or a twenty-year veteran, join Eye Care coding expert Jeffrey Restuccio, CPC, COC, MBA, for a tour of the most common modifiers with specific Eye Care examples. There will be step by step discussion and presentations specific to Eye Care. In just 60-minute, you will get tips to save your practice time and any potential lost revenue due to missed codes, code changes, or new documentation requirements.
