According to UHC, in order to prevent payment issues for multiple skilled nursing visits on the same day, providers need to bill in the following manner:
a. Bill each visit on its own line
b. Bill each visit with its RVU and HCPCS/CPT codes
c. The subsequent visits should be billed with a qualifying modifier (ex. XE)
Adding the appropriate modifier will ensure that the additional visit will be identified and processed for payment correctly, at expected rate.
