Thread: CLIA waived test-"QW" modifier

    Default CLIA waived test-"QW" modifier

    Does anyone know if this modifier should be appended to all payers or just the goverment payers. I can not find any information that states this modifier must be used on all payers.

    I'm in a pediatrics office and we append it to all... we don't have anyone denying it and we are contracted with several "major" insurances. Hope this helps.
