Coding modifiers can make or break your revenue. Knowing the correct modifier to attach to your claims can spell the difference between payment and ¬denial. From E/M modifiers -24 and -25 to procedural modifiers, including the -59 and -X modifier subsets, this extended 75-minute program will help you keep your claims clean.

Led by Terry Fletcher, one of America’s foremost medical coding experts, the webinar, complete with live Q&A, will review the thorniest and most misunderstood modifier issues in detail. Listeners can use what they learn from this broadcast to avoid denials based on modifier use—and, if denials still result, to defend their modifier use in response. 

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Thoroughly understand the most recent developments in medical coding modifiers and their use in denials management
  • Thoroughly understand the proper use of the most used modifiers, -25 and -59 (and its associated -X modifiers)
  • Thoroughly understand the proper use of frequently misused modifiers -22, -24, -33, and -76
  • Solve the modifier issue they’ve brought to the webinar via the Q&A period
