Modifiers are used to report or indicate that a service or procedure that has been performed has been altered by a specific circumstance but its basic definition has not been changed. This application is intended to provide a means of identifying how specific modifiers can change the reimbursement for, or the meaning of, a procedure or service. Existence of a valid procedure/modifier combination does not imply coverage. First Coast Service Options Inc. (First Coast) does not guarantee that this application will produce the exact results obtained from submitting a claim and having it processed through the Medicare Multi-Carrier System (MCS); it is intended only to approximate those results based on information entered into it.
First Coast Service Options (First Coast) strives to ensure that the information available on our provider website is accurate, detailed, and current. Therefore, this is a dynamic site and its content changes daily. It is best to access the site to ensure you have the most current information rather than printing articles or forms that may become obsolete without notice.
