Hello,
It is better to append 25 modifier always for any additional separately identifiable service done, after the E and M code.

If moderate sedation is being done, there must be a procedure being performed. If a separate, significant px is being done, yes, it would be appropriate to append the -25 to the E/M code in the ED setting.

what if there is no other px done with the moderate sedation? Dr just sedated the child so he could do some work up. do u still need to put mod 25?
