Modifiers are an integral part of CPT® coding. Many times the description of the services provided cannot be complete without the use of modifiers. Proper use will get the practice paid or enable payment on appeal. Improper use will cause compliance issues and potential losses in income. Modifiers affect not only compensation, but also affect compliant coding of services provided, so the physician, the coder, and the biller must understand how to use and document for modifiers to maintain coding and billing compliance. Otolarygology specific examples will be used in this class.
