5 Easy Ways to Get Paid for More of What You Do
Would you like to be able to make more money from services you already provide?
Provide additional services to generate more office revenue?
You could be just one easy step or modifier away!
Below, you'll find our list of 5 of the easiest ways for a Chiropractic office to get paid for more of what they do.
EXAMS - AVOID BUNDLING
When an exam is given on the same day as an adjustment , distinguish the Exam as a "separate and distinct service" by appending MODIFIER -25 to your appropriate E&M billing code. Example: 99203-25
For X-Rays taken outside your office: If an X-Ray report is deemed insufficient from a chiropractic standpoint, it is acceptable for you to RE-WRITE the report and bill for it by appending MODIFIERS -26 and -77 to the appropriate X-Ray code.
Modifier -59 has been replaced by four more specific modifiers:
XE - Separate Encounter
XS - Separate Structure
XP - Separate Practitioner
XU - Unusual Non-overlapping Service
REPORT OF FINDINGS
Since there is no official "Report of Findings" billing code, you may consider using the "Counseling Time
Override" to bill for report of findings visits.
Use Health & Behavior Assessment Codes 96150 (Initial) and 96151 (Re-Eval) to get paid for Outcome
Assessments when you follow three easy steps.
