    It shouldn't be required. Are you getting denials?

    It shouldn't be required, but we have the same issue - if we don't append modifier -25 for most of the insurance carriers, then either the preventive code or the immunization administration is denied. It is unfortunate that insurance plans do not have to follow CPT guidelines.

    Question mod 25 and cpx & immun

    I haven't tried it yet, I did read it in one of the coding edge issue but I didn't
    feel the infor was definit enough. So that's why I am asking if anyone knows
    if that it is appliable.
