    All carriers in PA require an SG modifier with each procedure, except for Medicare.

    I am in Texas as well. Workers compensation requested that the SG modifier is on their claims. I have only had two WC comp carriers say they dont need it, {Safeco and Hartford} but that changes like the wind.
