GY modifier

  1. Default GY modifier
    New Call-to-action
    Hi All,

    Please guide me about modifier GY when & why it should be appended.
    frequently am getting denials for L-codes(orthotics) for DMERC insurace as missing modifier.
    I think i can apply GY to that L-codes.

    Please share your knowledge & correct me if i am wrong.

    Thanks In Advance

    Pay attention to: The GY modifier must be used when physicians, practitioners, or suppliers want to indicate that the item or service is statutorily non-covered or is not a Medicare benefit.

    Hope this helps:
