I am not sure what modifier to use on a 90817 (Psychotherapy w/ E/M) when billed with 90853 (Group Psychotherapy). 25? 51?


Thanks for your help! :)

Hi,

According to CCI, 90817 is a component of 90853 and the indicator is (1). Your modifier, if criteria met, would be -59 (on the 90817).

Hope this helps!
