Are your Medicare claims being denied because of incorrect modifiers?

As an HJ Ross Network member you would know exactly which Medicare modifiers to use and when.

The Active Treatment (AT) modifier was developed to define the difference between active treatment and maintenance treatment.

Medicare only pays for active or corrective treatment to correct acute or chronic subluxation. Medicare does not pay for maintenance therapy.

For the chiropractic service, the AT modifier would be appended to the spinal manipulation CPT codes 98940–98942 when active treatment is being performed.

If CPT codes 98940–98942 are billed without a modifier the claim will be denied by the system as not medically necessary.

Billing with incorrect chiropractic CPT codes can lead to claim rejections and delays in payments, which can have a devastating impact on generating revenue and keeping you in business.
