Insurance Modifiers


Medical coding is the means of getting the "story" out to an insurance company and modifers provide additional information about the service performed. Modifiers often provide justification as to why additional procedures should be paid. Using modifiers can prevent bundling of procedures, however, they should only be used if the chart note justifies it.

The following are descriptions of some commonly used modifiers followed by a broader list. This list is intended as a quick guide. Be sure to consult your CPT code book for more details about modifiers.
