    Default Modifer for Attending

    AAPC: Back to School
    With Consults going away 2010, we will have to put a modfier on the Attending's bill. I heard of two different modifiers.

    1. NA
    2. Al

    Do we know yet?

    CMS posted the consultation transmittal: http://www.cms.hhs.gov/Transmittals/...tNumPerPage=10

    The modifier for the admitting physician of record is AI (as in Apple, Ink) NOT A1 (A-one)

    then look for Transmittal number R1875CP.
