Increase your chiropractic billing modifier accuracy – and your reimbursement rate – with this handy, easy-to-follow modifier graphic.
If you’ve ever traveled to a country where you don’t speak the language, you know how difficult it is to communicate the right message. You might think you’re asking where to get a taxi, when in fact, you’re asking how to hug a cow – or something equally embarrassing. The point is that you’re probably not going to get that taxi.
This is the case with chiropractic codes and modifiers. They are their own language, and if you don’t use them correctly, the right message will not be received. Chiropractic modifiers, in particular, tell insurance companies that there is something different about the services related to the CPT code being billed. If you’re inaccurate with your modifiers, then it will negatively affect your reimbursement rate – and your bottom line.
