For the Week of April 12, 2021
In the example of the EKG with an EP study, do you agree that we should report the 93005 but not modify it with modifier 59? Do other hospitals override the edit instead of using the GZ? If the entire claim is denied due to the GZ modifier being on the claim, what action should we take? Should we reach out to our FI?
Can modifier 91 be appended to every laboratory code that is reported more than one time on the same date of service?
If a nurse is furnishing services that do not require the need for a respiratory therapist would the service be separately billable?
