    I'm sure it's not fun for the people who field the calls either.

    Default Sg Modifier Answer

    Medicare will pay with or without the SG Modifier until May 23, 2008. Somebody told me if the SG Modifier is on the claim after May 23, 2003 the claim could get rejected. Other payers that we file the 1500 form on have asked us to leave the SG modifier on the claim. I myself have not heard of or am I using another Modifier in it's place. Our claims from Medicare are still getting paid.
