    Hello! Does anyone know if there is a code or a modifier that can be used to indicate that a patient was urgently worked in and took time away from other scheduled patients?

    Thanks!

    I would say "No" they were just considered a walk-in. But i could be wrong. We bill these patients as all others. They are just considered add-on's or walk-in's.

    No there is not a code for that as to my knowledge. Patient would be considered a walk in patient that needed urgent care.

    Look at 99058 to see if that describes the service provided.

    This may NOT be payable by most carriers, so be sure you have an ABN.
