Thread: Therapeutic Sevice with Mod -59?

    Question Therapeutic Sevice with Mod -59?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Please help! I am looking at a denied claim that was submitted with 97530-59 four times. The definition of 97530 is Therapeutic activities, direct (one-on-one) patient contact by the provider (use of dynamic activities to improve functional performance), each 15 minutes. This means that the patient was seen for a total of 60 minutes.
    Does this claim need a modifier at all?

    If this was all that was done it should have been billed once with 4 units.
