Will you use a modifier 25 on 99214 when you give a injection? Can anyone give me all codes that you would use a modifier 25? or explanation on what you would use it on.

Hi Shelly,

Yes, 25 modifier would be appended with 99214 when you give an injection.

Modifier-25 is used for an unrelated evaluation and management (E/M) by the same provider or other qualified health care professional that is a significant, separately identifiable services performed on the same day as another procedure or service.

 The physician must show, by documentation in the medical record, that on the day a procedure was performed, the patient’s condition required a separately identifiable E/M service above and beyond the usual care associated with the procedure that was performed. A significant, separately identifiable E/M service is substantiated by documentation that satisfies the relevant criteria for the respective E/M service to be reported.
