    Default Modifier AK

    Hello, does anyone know if it is ok to bill Medicare a claim with a AK modifier, for a nurse practitioner in a physician's office?? Please Help!!!

  2. Smile RE: AK Modifier for Nurse Practioner-Non participating

    If she has applied already for her Medicare No., on her application she would have noted that she was not a participating provider. To place the AK modifier will not necessarily "hurt" your claim. However, the best way to clear up your question is to call Medicare's 1-800 number. Medicare could view it simply as being redundant. Best of luck.
