Back my popular demand! Join us at 1 p.m. (Eastern) Wednesday, January 7, to review the big changes coming for modifier -59 in 2015. The most used, and according to CMS most misused, modifier has been under auditor scrutiny for many years. CMS is now introducing four new modifiers to be used in place of modifier -59 beginning January 1.

 
During this program, Jillian Harrington, MHA, CPC, CPC-I, CPC-P, CCS, CCS-P, MHP, will review why modifier -59 has been a frequent audit target, the definitions of the four new modifiers, and how to apply them for 2015.
