Webinar/Audio Conference FAQs

Don’t lose revenue because of modifier misuse, non-use or just to bypass CCI edits! The proper use of modifiers is an important part of coding and billing when telling an accurate “patient story” of the encounter. Avoid fraud and abuse in the coding and billing process. One of the top 10 billing errors determined by federal, state and private payers involves the incorrect use of modifiers. Review the role of modifiers in communicating the details and know when it is appropriate to use a modifier to obtain proper payment. Don’t miss this opportunity to gain more confidence when assigning modifiers.

  • Get examples that explain special modifier use such as when billing for a separately identifiable EM service on the same day as a minor surgery.
  • Learn the categories and correct use of modifiers including the four HCPCS modifiers established by CMS to define subsets of the -59 modifier.
  • Find out how to rank a modifier using the three categories and ranking rules when multiple modifier categories are used.
  • Class includes tools and tips to help decrease rejects or denials that occur due to lack of a modifier.
