Outpatient physical and occupational therapy services, and speech-language pathology services must be submitted with the appropriate HCPCS modifiers when these services are provided as part of a therapy plan of care. Therapy services that are submitted without the required modifier are 'returned as unprocessable' (remark code MA130) and must be corrected and resubmitted as new claims.
Therapy Modifier Requirements
Note: These modifiers may apply to other services that are furnished by therapists or provided under a therapy plan of care, depending upon the site of service (e.g., application of casts and strapping).
