    Hello. Does anyone know the how modifiers X7 and X9 may have been used in the past? I am assuming these are old codes since I cannot locate them in recent coding reference books. Thank you.

    In what context do you find X7 and X9 being used as HCPCS modifiers (CPT or HCPCS II)?

    Doing a Google search, I noticed that X7 and X9 are listed among the UB04 condition codes.

    Ron, I see them attached to DME and supply codes. Would these describe the condition of the unit/DME? Thanks, Bridget

    once upon a time there were 3 levels of HCPC codes and level 3 were what they called local codes they were codes and modifier that began with W X Y and Z. they were deemed non HIPAA compliant in 2000 and were dissolved. So it is not a valid modifier you are looking at. I am not sure what else thesecould be. You might ask whoever is using them.
