    Question Observation and 25 modifier

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can anyone tell me if it is appropriate to use a 25 modifier on G0379 -direct admit for observation? I'm coding for hospital and we have received conflicting answers and I can't find anything that addresses it. Thanks.

    I'm not a guru in hospital, or outpatient coding, but I don't believe that modifier 25 falls into G0379.

    Here's a website with what seems like some good information regarding G0379.


    Hope this helps!
