UCR 009: Modifier -25

Mark, Scott and Ray talk modifier -25.  In addition to a general overview about the definition, they give several urology examples.

Modifier -25 definition: Significant, Separately Identifiable Evaluation and Management Service by the Same Physician on the Same Day of the Procedure or Other Service: It may be necessary to indicate that on the day a procedure or service identified by a CPT code was performed, the patient's condition required a significant, separately identifiable E/M service above and beyond the other service provided or beyond the usual preoperative and postoperative care associated with the procedure that was performed.
