Ms. Pinky, I absolutely love your site.  It is the best! I've read your modifier info and examples
but remain confused. Please tell me which modifier is appropriate to use for Occup Therapy when
using codes (same day) 97140 (manual therapy),97110(therapy exercise) and 97530
(therapeutic activities). Is it modifier 25 or 59? No one else has been able to provide clear -

Hello! You have a great website full of very useful info.  I do have a question about Therapy
coding.  For secondary dx on a claim after the V57.XX code, can one use the
symptoms/diagnoses the therapist documents in the eval or does one have to stick with the
diagnosis code on the physician's order?

What is the correct way to bill 62311x2 77003 and 72275 for Medicare. I bill as follows but keep
getting denials for not medically necessary. 62311 72275 59/26 77003 59/26 62311 59 Thank
you for taking the time to answer my questions.
Beki, Accounts Receivables, Florida

I just wanted to say THANK YOU... I just started working with a new doctor that does spinal
injections and I found that her last office manager/biller had no idea about the code changes for
the Facet Injections. I goggled a variety of things and finally found your Blog which stated in the
simplest of terms the changes and how to correct the codes. So thank you, thank you, thank
you..

I discovered Pinky's website one day while looking on the internet for tips on billing for pain
management services. Pinky has helped me establish an Anesthesia & Pain Management
practice in rural Arizona town. If it wasn't for Pinky I would be totally lost. She is truly committed
to providing quality service and is an extremely valuable asset to the my practice. If Pinky ever
quits this profession, I will just have to retire. She is an expert in her field and I can guarantee
she is the best in the business.

Pinky is a very knowledgeable consultant for pain management billing and coding. She is very
professional in her area of expertise. She is very dependable and highly professional. I have
spoken with many people recently who "claim" to be knowledgeable in this field, only to have
been given the "run around" on numerous occasions. The field of Pain Management Billing is
relatively complicated for medical practice offices who specialize in Interventional Pain
Management. If anyone is in need of pain management medical practice billing and coding
consultant, I highly recommend Pinky for all your billing and coding questions. She is very
upfront when it comes to compliancy. She constantly recommends strict compliancy -

Roland, Physical Therapy Unlimited, Brooklyn, NY

Almost two years ago I found your site in my initial studies to determine if I wanted to go ahead
and pursue this "late" in life desire to to learn billing/coding.  At that time, I did email you.  
Today, I returned to your site once again and have been feasting on your articles.  I stand in
awe of your experience and credentials.  This business is not for the "faint-of-heart" to be sure!  
I'm a senior oldster, who just received her CPC-A certification status in November and currently
working for my DIL who is a 17 year veteran in medical billing.  I'm so fortunate to be starting
from the bottom.

However, at this stage in life, don't have a whole lot of years left to compile years of experience,
and would like to know how to find a niche from which to excel!  Right now we're billing remotely
for a pain-management specialist, and feel it would be best to concentrate on learning to help
this doctor get the best revenue for his services rendered, especially in the areas of myo-blok
and botox injections for pain.  Just trying to fine-tune my study and networking skills as there is
soooo much out there!
Your site has been so helpful, and I just wish I could shadow you for a day, or longer!
I love your passion for what you do!!!  It's contagious! -  
Sincerely, Sue, CPC-A Everett, WA

Just wanted to say a quick 'thank you' for your great resources online.  You're doing a fabulous

i just wanted to say thank you for your site, it is very informative and helpful.  I am actually
switching careers as I was an Administrative Assistant for 19 years and now changing at my
age !!!

I am just completing a course in Medical Terminology and Understanding Health Insurance and
plan to take ICD-9 and CPT classes in the spring.

I plan on giving out your website to my classmates, i am on it alot and read all your articles and
try to understand everything, but its very confusing right now to me, however, a friend of mine
is a coder and she said that she cried everyday for six months and then suddenly it clicked, she
said, so i am hanging in there !!!!!!!

Again, thanks for your site, and keep up the good work, and i admire your intelligence. Thank
you!
Mary (from Massachusetts)

I'm just returning to college after a 30 year hiatus and from a successfull music teaching career.
I'm at the age where I just wanted to do something different and do some life-changing events
have become very interested in the administrative medical community.  The coding process has
fascinated me!  IF I can take little black dots on a piece of paper and transfer them into
meaningful music, hopefully I can do the same thing with the coding language and facilitate
maximum payment for my (hopefully) future employer. Your credentials are impressive and the
fact that you want to be a blessing and help to others speaks for itself.  Thank you for creating
such a site, and I'm pleased to avail myself to your wonderful abundant resources.-
