Hello! I am a CPC for the department OBGYN for a large medical group. just spoke with a member of management from the central billing office at my place of work, and they requested that I advise our billers that they may not append the modifier 25 to any office visit if they are not coders. I have never heard tell of this in the many years I have done billing and coding. Does anyone know if this is true? If so, is there a citation where I could see this guideline? I have scoured the web. I can't find a single thing outside of articles that give scenarios of appropriate usage, and I really need to know if we've just been doing it wrong this whole time! Thank you so much in advance!
