Coding for Early Intervention Services
To: Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapists, and Behavioral Health providers
Proper use of modifiers can help avoid claim denials and incorrect payments. As a reminder, Early Intervention Services (EIS) therapy claims must include the TL modifier on the claim in the first position.
Therapy services that are billed without the TL modifier will not be identified as an EIS-specific claim.
You can view coding and documentation requirements in the Provider and Facility Reference Manual by visiting bcbswny.com/provider.
