26Modifier 25 Examples 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.
