Would it be correct to use the mod 22 for a GYN visit for a deaf pt? We arrange and reimburse the interpreter for their services to our pt. So my question is, would it reasonable to add mod 22 along with the deaf codes to her E&M visit to our GYN physician?

I found this thread:

https://www.aapc.com/memberarea/forums/17507-coverage-billing-interpreter-services.html

and per this excerpt:

The doctor/health care provider must pay for the cost of an INTERPRETER, even if the cost of the INTERPRETER is more than the cost of your visit. The doctor/health care provider is expected to handle the cost of INTERPRETER as a normal business expense or as part of the overhead costs of operating a business.

I don't think you can
