Modifiers 58, 78 and 79

Duration: 12:32

Billing for surgical services may involve special modifiers.  Three of the most important ones are: -58, -78, -79.  When should they be used?  What are the effects on my reimbursement if I do use one of these modifiers?  The proper use and documentation of these surgical modifiers applying to “major” procedures is covered in this 12 minute eLearning program.  Review questions are presented and discussed at the conclusion of the course.
