Medicare and UHC Ease Rules for Attaching Physical Therapy Modifiers

Medicare and UHC have announced that effective for dates of service on or after July 1, 2019, their CCI Editing policy will allow modifiers 59, XE, XP, XS and XU to be appended to either code in the Column I/Column II procedure to procedure edits, when a modifier override is allowed. So, for Medicare and UHC, it no longer matters which code you attach the modifier to, they will still allow the edit.
