SuperCoder Answered Mon 25th of September, 2017 06:20:43 AM

Yes, you can append AI modifier with 99219 Observation Initial Visit.


The AI modifier is to be used by the admitting or attending physician only. This modifier will identify the physician who oversees the patient’s care from all other physicians who may be furnishing specialty care.


NOTE: This is an informational only modifier. The modifier will not make any changes in processing or amounts payable.
