FISS Narrative
Per CR 8005*, these non-payable G-codes and severity/complexity modifiers provide information about the beneficiary's functional status at the outset of the therapy episode of care, at specified points during treatment, and at the time of discharge. These G-codes and related modifiers are required on selected claims for all outpatient therapy services. These are not payable by Medicare.
