Florida's Medicare Admistrative Contractor (MAC) First Coast Service Options (FCSO) has identified excessive use of the KX modifier on claims submitted by providers billing outpatient therapy services.
Medicare only reimburses for services that are considered to be reasonable and necessary for the diagnosis and treatment of illness or injury or to improve the functioning of a malformed body member.
Medicare does not cover maintenance therapy.
The webinar on the Therapy cap exception process and use of the KX modifier will be held on Tuesday, May 22 at 11:30 AM-12:30 PM EST. The delivery language is English.
