New modifier for billing pharmacological management visits for psychiatric conditions

Effective August 1, 2015, for dates of service on or after January 1, 2015, pharmacological management services must be billed using modifier UD to designate the visit as primarily focused on pharmacological management of a psychiatric condition. Pharmacological management services billed with modifier UD will not count towards the 30 visit per calendar year limitation.
