Can you tell me if your practice codes a -25 with E/M for everyone who had something else done during the visit, like 81003 or 87880 or 81025? Do in house labs count as a procedure or service as defined by AMA?
I am trying to get this right because mod -25 was never explained to me properly until a brick hit me in the head yesterday (figuratively speaking).
Now I understand that with 20610, 11200, etc (actual procedures) that I'll add the -25 to the E/M that came with it, but what about labs and such?
