Suffix modifier

Norelie Posted Thu 08th of January, 2015 18:09:54 PM

Can a modifier be a suffix to a CPT code?

Thanks for your question. Yes, a modifier is a two character suffix for procedure codes. They can be alpha and or numeric and are used to indicate that the procedure code has been altered in some way.
