Medicare Will Require G-Codes and C-Modifiers be Included on the Claim

All physical therapy billing, as well as occupational therapy and speech therapy billing, will have to include functional reporting G codes and C modifiers on the claims or they will get denied beginning July 1, 2013.  Don’t worry, the new requirements are not that difficult to implement.  And these efforts are for the purpose of moving away from the faulty Medicare “Cap” system currently in place.  This article will explain how to make physical therapy billing G codes easy!

Where do these “G Codes” (and C modifiers) Go on the HCFA Form?
