Modifiers are making news again. And the news isn't good. That's because modifiers continue to be a target for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General (HHS-OIG), Recovery Audit Contractors (RAC), and commercial payer audits. These audits often result in your practice refunding money as well as putting your practice at risk of costly fines, expensive corporate integrity agreements, and even potential exclusion from the Medicare Program.

The good news: This exclusive ICD10monitor 30-minute lunch and learn, led by national coding authority Kathy Pride, will provide you with the knowledge necessary for knowing when and how to apply correct usage of E&M modifiersand most recently and notably, the headline-grabbing modifier 25, which will help to harden your practice or facility from devastating audits, recoupments and fines.
