Question and answer
Q: With the use of what modifier should medical documentation be submitted? Describe a scenario that would require the use of that modifier.
A: ?When the work required to provide a service is substantially greater than typically required, it may be identified by adding modifier 22 to the usual procedure code. [ Documentation must support the substantial additional work and the reason for the additional work.? (CPT 2011) ?This modifier should be used only when additional work factors requiring the physician?s technical skill involve
significantly increased physician work, time, and complexity than when the procedure is normally performed.? (CPT Code Changes 2008) Modifier 22 is appropriate in reporting increased procedural cases, such as * Trauma extensive enough to complicate the particular procedure and that cannot be billed with additional procedure codes * Significant scarring requiring extra time and work * Extra work resulting from morbid obesity or other unusual anatomic anomalies * Increased time resulting from extra work by the physician * Additional work and time involved in managing a patient?s co-morbid conditions throughout the procedure * When work associated with bundled procedures is more extensive than normal ]
