Know and understand the proper way of billing with modifier 25
("Significant, separately identifiable evaluation and management service by
the same physician on the same day or other service"). Let me give you a
good example, the patient came to the office today for a knee injection. If
there is no other complain or reason of that visit other than the knee
injection, you do not bill for the office visit.
(1) Append modifier 25 for the E/M codes only!
(2) Do not append modifier 25 for the E/M code if the office visit is
unrelated to post surgery/procedure or within the global period) - instead
use modifier 24!
