According to the American Medical Association (AMA) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), a modifier provides the means to report or indicate that a service or procedure that has been performed has been altered by some specific circumstance but not changed in its definition or code.
 
It may also provide more information about a service, such as it was performed more than once, unusual events occurred, or it was performed by more than one physician and/or in more than one location.
 
This document is a reference tool to guide readers to reimbursement policies in which modifiers
are addressed. For complete information, please refer to the specific reimbursement policy that
pertains to your coding situation.
