Common Chiropractic Modifiers

Chiropractic Modifiers Are Essential Codes Capable of Increasing Reimbursements

Chiropractic modifiers communicate to the insurance company that something is different about the services related to the CPT code being billed. Modifiers must be used correctly, and often they can increase reimbursements for patient care.

Proper Use Common Modifiers in Chiropractic Coding

Understand each payers’ recommended usage prior to billing in order to ensure proper reimbursement. Because Chiropractic Manipulative Treatment (CMT) modifiers are used to clarify treatment provided, when billing CMT to Medicare, you would append the proper modifiers as required by Medicare.

Medicare Has Specific Modifiers for Locum Tenens
