    Can you clarify what you mean? Do you mean that someone at your office apllied this modifier to some of your claims, or do you mean that it was added by the payer? What we're trying to figure out is the origin of the modifier on your claims, because as far as we know there is no such thing as a QKK modifier.

    If this modifier is on an EOB, why not call the carrier for an explanation? I have never heard of a modifier being more than 2 letters or digits or spaces. Could of also been in error.

    I think the OP probably has his answer by now through some other means... he hasn't posted back here in 10 days...
