    Cool NCCI Edits, what does 0, 1, 9 mean?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Just looking at the NCCI edits, there is a 0, 1, 9 at the end column. Can anyone tell me what these mean? Maybe it says on the web site somewhere and I missed it. Thanks for your help.

    They are indicators if you can use a modifier or not with a code pair
    0= Not allowed
    1= Allowed
    9= Not applicable

    0=not allowed
    9=not applicable"

    Hope this helps. If you go into the column 1/column 2 at the very top it will show this.
