1 Hour


Incorrect usage of a modifier may lead to denials or altered reimbursement.  The modifier provides additional information about the medical procedure, service, or supply involved without changing the meaning of the code. New modifiers have been added for 2022 that may impact your office.  Since chiropractic procedures, policies, and regulations are often complex, we sometimes need to supply additional information.  Knowing the proper use of a modifier may be critical to a claim’s status. Dr. Mario Fucinari, a seasoned practitioner, Medicare expert,  and certified professional compliance officer will guide you through the maze of proper use of modifiers whether you are a solo practitioner or a multidisciplinary office.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand government regulations and industry trends, Establish procedures for documentation and coding
  • Learn documentation guidelines and requirements
  • Learn documentation and coding requirements for therapeutic modalities and procedures
  • Recognize clinical situations to utilize the ABN form properly

This course was originally presented by Dr. Mario Fucinari on April 26, 2022.
