Is a mod needed for cases where a patient is discharged from the hospital and on the way home is involved in a car accident. Pt returns for observation care for injuries due to the accident but is never admitted.
Billed 99238 on 9-29-07
Charge submitted for Obs 99219 on 9-29-07
I did find information and the use of Mod 27, but am not certain it is appropriate.

Modifier 27 is for Hospital reporting. If you are billing for physician's services you have to report the second service with modifier 25.
