Modifier update: 2022
Recorded February 17, 2022
CMS released four new modifiers at the end of 2021, and CPT released one. These include modifiers for split/shared services, critical care in the post op period, audio-only telehealth services and physician supervision via audio/visual communication. It’s a lot of change for medical practices and coders. This webinar will describe the rules for using these services, based on CMS transmittals released mid-January. There will be a brief discussion of the new place of service code 10 and CMS’s policy about it.
After the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Describe the rules for split/shared services and the modifier to use for Medicare patients
- Know when to append modifier FT for critical care in the global period
- Identify services that may be reported as telehealth services
