What is A Modifier?


Modifiers are two digit codes used to report additional information used during claims processing. Modifiers may be alpha-alpha, alpha-numeric or numeric -numeric, such as AA, E1 or 25. Some modifiers describe additional work or circumstances that affected the service provided and may impact reimbursement. Other modifiers are used for informational purposes only and will not impact reimbursement, but may prevent denials. CPT modifiers are published in the Physicians CPT Manual. HCPCS and locally assigned modifiers are reported in the Medicare Advisory .
