A new APTA podcast addresses the appropriate use of billing modifiers, which provide additional information to payers in cases in which diagnosis and procedure codes alone are insufficient. The podcast and accompanying transcript explain the difference between the 2 types of modifiers typically used by physical therapists and the relationship between modifiers and the National Correct Coding Initiative. Additionally, the most frequently used modifiers are discussed, along with the type of detail that supporting documentation should provide.
