Effective April 1, 2021, the Division of Workers’ Compensation adopted an all-new Medical-Legal Fee Schedule, complete with new billing codes and modifiers. Like many things in workers’ comp, the rules for applying the new Med-Legal codes and modifiers can get complicated — to say the least.
That’s why we created a handy workflow graphic for providers and their staff, available for download below. Use it as a quick reference guide to ensure you’re applying the right codes and add-ons in the proper units to reflect the services rendered.
Consider it our gift to you!
