MVP Medicare Patients-KX modifier

If you are a physician that provides PT/OT/ST services to MVP Medicare Patients, then this blog post is for you!

KX modifier should NOT be used when the member did not exhaust that member’s PT/OT/ST benefits.


Claims that require a therapy cap exception and are billed with the KX modifier must:
• Qualify for the therapy cap exception
• Be medically reasonable and necessary services that require the skills of a therapist
Be justified by appropriate documentation in the medical records and would be available for review upon request

Providers: Please log on to the MVP website and verify member benefits to see that member met their annual PT/OT/ST visit cap.
