National Correct Coding Initiative (NCCI) edits are used by the Medicare program, state Medicaid programs as well as some commercial insurance carriers and workers compensation carriers to combat abusive and fraudulent billing practices in outpatient therapy as well as other services. Modifier 59 is used by outpatient therapy providers to bypass certain NCCI edits and allow the payment of more than 1 CPT code billed on the same day that an insurance carrier may consider should be bundled and separate payment should not be made. Because of this, modifier 59 is not only the most commonly used modifier, it is also the most commonly abused modifier. In addition, the need to use modifier 59 is not only within the same discipline but may also be required when a patient is receiving multiple disciplines from the same provider on the same date of service.

Version 28.2 is effective with dates of service between July 1 – September 30, 2022. This 1-hour webinar program will explain NCCI edits, the use of modifier 59 and what CPT code(s) to append modifier 59 to on the claim form. In addition, the webinar will provide detailed and realistic examples when providers of outpatient therapy services would utilize modifier 59. Examples will include all 3 disciplines as well as how speech therapy billing impacts the physical and occupational therapy codes billed the same day. The webinar will also provide the latest information on the XE, XP, XS and XU modifiers. Lastly, participants will receive Gawenda Seminars & Consulting NCCI Version 28.2 “cheat sheet” to assist them in knowing when to apply modifier 59 to a CPT code on the claim form.
