Ai & 25

The use of the AI is to recognize the admitting physician (example 99223 AI)
The follow up visits do not require the AI modifier 99233, 99231.

When billing for a consultation I do not use the AI modifier as it is not required.

Modifier 25 is needed only if you have another procedure in addition to the hospital
Admit or visit


I hope this helps,
shan
