    Default physical medicine modifiers

    AAPC: Back to School
    We have just taken on a new doctor that does physical medicine I am new to coding
    for this specialty. Is there any specific modifiers I should know about when billing for his
    charges. Or anything else that may help me when billing for this type of doctor.

    What type of services is the new doc performing? We have this specialty in my clinic. Have you come across any particular denials?...this post is several months old now, so by now you should have had some claims go through. Our docs typically perform consults/office visits/injections in clinic and outpatient, so I have become familiar with these situations.
