Even if you are a CPT coding pro with years of experience, you might be missing out on valuable coding opportunities that produce considerable revenue!

Modifiers are two-digit codes that signal a change in how a code for a procedure should be applied for a claim. When used correctly, modifiers add billing accuracy.

Misused, they can cause denials, payer audits, and worse — investigations, refunds, and fines. And without them, the claim could be paid incorrectly, or in many cases not paid at all.
