    Question mod 25 & mod 59 with a 94664 (inhaler)
    Medical Coding Books
    Hello-

    So I have a question for anyone who can help.

    1. We originally billed the claim without a modifier... office visit (99213) and inhaler (94664). ....

    2. Our billing department for internal medicine has recently re-opened the office visit that was already paid to add a mod 25 because the inhaler
    (94664) was also performed at the time of the visit but was not paid on initial claim.. Is what the billing dept did correct?

    3. Or should we just have added a mod 59 to the 94664 ?

    Let me know! Thank You-

    It should have had the 25 modifier.
