I'm trying to rack my brain.... modifiers are rarely used with hospitalists because they are strictly inpatient. Very rarely will they perform a procedure (always minor) it's normally just E/M. (For my hospitalists at least) The only thing that comes to mind off hand is when say they do a subsequent care and a critical care, you'd use modifier 25 on the sub care.
oh let me add - occasionally we'll get a denial for a hospice patient and sometimes we'll have to throw on the GW modifier (service not related to hospice patient's terminal condition) or GV modifier (attending physician not employed or paid under arrangement by the patient's hospice provider)
