On July 1st, 2015 billing for medical claims will need new and updated modifiers.  Each billing coordinator will be required to update their district’s service setup.  This should be done after all logs for FY15 have been entered.  The old services should not be deleted as they are still needed for billing.  We have created a way to disable them after July 1.  Please also note that the transportation code will have to have the modifier added of U8TM.  SpEd Forms does have the additional modifier of 76 programmed for any additional trips the same day.
