Hi Everyone,

Can modifier 25 be used when a pt comes in for cpx or well check up and
vaccination was given or injection was given. Can you apply mod 25 to the prevenative code?

example:
99392-prevenative
90715-td
90471-administration of inj

can this be done like this
99392-25
90715
90471

thank you
msmaddy

It shouldn't be required, but we have the same issue - if we don't append modifier -25 for most of the insurance carriers, then either the preventive code or the immunization administration is denied. It is unfortunate that insurance plans do not have to follow CPT guidelines.

I haven't tried it yet, I did read it in one of the coding edge issue but I didn't
feel the infor was definit enough. So that's why I am asking if anyone knows
if that it is appliable.

thanks
