25 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

26 Modifier 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.

27 Modifier 76 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 93000.
