    Smile Modifier for CPT 97750

    Hi Friends,

    Please help me with this

    Our provider of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation performs balance screening with written report for 15 min.

    We are using CPT 97750 [Physical performance test or measurement (eg, musculoskeletal, functional capacity), with written report, each 15 minutes ] for coding the same. Dx are Gait abnormality & Lack of co-ordination.

    Medicare has denied the claim stating missing / invalid modifier.

    Do we have to add RT, LT , 50 or any other specific modifier ?

    It has been awhile since I did rehab and I don't have any back up on this right off hand but I believe the modifiers they are looking for are either GO or GP, which denote whether it is an occupational therapist or a physical therapist.

    Hope this helps,

    Laura, CPC, CEMC
