CMS Update: G-Codes are gone! Keep using the KX modifier.

Posted by Michelle Pietsch on Feb 4, 2019 4:15:10 PM

CMDo you provide therapy services to Medicare beneficiaries? G-Codes and severity modifiers are gone, but the KX modifier is still required. CONNECT makes all of this so easy.

 

G-Codes are gone! Happy news for our therapy community.

The KX modifier is still required, though, so make sure you understand this update to the Medicare reporting requirements.

If your patient’s plan of care has exceeded the threshold of expenses, you must confirm these services are medically necessary. Report the KX modifier on the applicable claims and, as always, make sure your documentation supports the charge.

The KX modifier is no longer used to request an exception to the threshold.
