    Question Hosp visits
    Medical Coding Books
    ?????
    Can a modifier be used on a hosptial visit/consult, critical care or observation code?

    I think I know the answer but my brain is freezing up on me right now and I need a correct answer.

    Thanks

    Default Depends...
    What are you wanting to bill in addition to those codes?
    Is it professional or facility charges?
    If professional then yes depending on what is being billed.

    Default -25 or -57
    Both -25 and -57 modifiers can be applied to these codes, as appropriate.
