December 2016 Texas Medicaid Provider Procedures Manual

Radiology and Laboratory Services Handbook : 2 Independent Laboratory : 2.2 Services, Benefits, Limitations, and Prior Authorization : 2.2.4 Clinical Laboratory Procedures : 2.2.4.1 Repeat Procedures

2.2.4.1
Modifier 91 should be used for repeat clinical diagnostic tests as follows:
Providers may appeal claims that have been denied for documentation of time. Most procedure codes that initially required modifier 91 will continue to be audited for modifier 91.
When appealing claims with modifier 91 for repeat procedures, providers must separate the details. One detail should be appealed without the modifier and one detail with the modifier, including documentation of times for each repeated procedure.
