  • On a personal note I've been married for 22 years and have 4 young children who are now the light of my life.  We aimed to adopt one via foster care and ended up with 4 - so my life has completely changed and now I have much more appreciation for those moms out there going to coding school while taking care of a family and working!\n \nWho is Boyd?\n

  • Laureen - note*undecided if you wanted to use this, was answered in the forum-sylvia http://codingcertification.org/forum/threads/difference-between-modifiers-and-level-ii-national-usage.256/\n\nRuth replied: Linda, Luna's suggestion to use the Free Modifier Job Aid is a good one. Also, you probably should take the time to read through CPT Appendix A where the modifiers are described, then use the Modifier Grid to remind you of where the modifier fits in. You are correct that most modifiers are either intended for E/M OR for non-E/M procedures. Only modifiers -32 (mandated services) and -52 (reduced services) may be used with both E/M and non E/M procedures.\n\nRegarding your other question: When a PT is seen in ER was assigned an E/M level and an IM was given, is it appropriate to add modifer -59 to the injection code? The answer is no, it is not appropriate. To use -59 you would need 2 non E/M procedures that are not normally reported together, and you only have one non E/M procedure (the injection). \n
