Modifiers Modifiers are 2 digit codes which accompany a 5 digit CPT code in order to further describe a situation to support additional payment when more then one service is being reported in the same session on the same day. Primary Care Modifiers 25, 76, GE, GC
Modifier 25 Modifier –25 Should only be appended to evaluation and management (E/M) service codes HCPCS codes G0101(Breast & Pelvic Screening) and Procedures You do not need a modifier 25 when billing an office visit and also billing for: 1) Diagnostics (eg. EKG) 2) Immunizations 3) Screenings
Modifier 25 Examples 1) When the patient presents for a planned procedure and has a different problem that requires an E/M service (two different diagnoses would be used to distinguish the services) 2) the patient presents with a "minor" problem and after evaluation the decision is made to perform a procedure. In the second example –25 is used if the procedure is minor in nature, meaning that the post-operative period is less than 90 days and the primary diagnosis would be the same for both.
Modifier 76 Use modifier 76 when you repeat a service already performed with the same diagnosis code within a 30 day period. Example: Chest pain order EKG and did a repeat 2 wks later same diagnosis “ chest pain” – affix modifier 76 on
