Thread: Qualifier for 90772?

    Default Qualifier for 90772?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Medicare is saying that in order to unbundle the injection code from an E/M visit on the same day, you need to put a 25 modifier on the E/M code but also a "qualifier" on the 90772.
    What is the qualifier that is needed?
    I have never heard of this.

    Default Add 59

    Add a modifier 59 to your 90772. This will also work with most insurances, and I know that Medicaid HMO's will pay a few dollars more when you use this in conjunction with your E/M with a 25 on that.

    Dont forget that modifiers have their own criteria that needs to be met before applying them. i would be leary of using them just to qualify for additional reimbursement.
