Thread: Physical status and extreme age modifiers

    Default Physical status and extreme age modifiers

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is anyone billing anesthesia as a hospital based provider where the anesthesia is billed with the hospital bill and getting paid for the physical modifiers P3-P5 or the extreme age modifier 99100 from Medicare?

    Yes, we code for the physical status modifiers P3-P5 and get paid from Medicare. We do not bill for the 99100 age modifier (Medicare will not pay for it or emergencies (99140).)
