I know that the mandatory ‘go live’ date isn’t until July 1st for claims to be in compliance with G-Codes and Severity Modifiers.  However, why wait until the last minute?  If you haven’t contacted you software vendor to discuss when they will be ready to accept the G-Codes and Severity Modifiers, I strongly recommend that you don’t wait any longer.

I know, July seems still far away (especially if you live in the North where you are having hot then cold weather, then warm followed by a cold front) and you wonder if summer will ever get here. But you know how time flies when you are having fun.  And believe me, July will be here before you know it.  So don’t increase your stress by a knee-jerk reaction.  Start the process now.

If you require support or have any questions, please know that we are here for you!  You can contact your Regional Manager, our Accounting Department, your Clinical Manager/Program Manager, and of course, little ‘ol me!  🙂

We would like to send our partners a ‘test file’ to ensure the codes and modifiers are exported/imported appropriately and in order to do this, we have to have data.  Therefore, all therapists must be reporting the G-Codes and Severity Modifiers.

Even though this message may seen a little premature in nature, I hope that this friendly reminder blog will keep this topic on the top of your list to tackle.
