QW MODIFIER FOR CLIA WAIVED TESTS?

  • 1.  QW MODIFIER FOR CLIA WAIVED TESTS?

    Posted 26 days ago

    Hello, 

    It recently came to my attention that our claims for Clia waived tests are going out without a QW modifier / QW code.  I asked our coding manager why, and she told me it's because our CLIA number is on our claims.  Can someone point me in the way of documentation on the correct process for using QW modifiers?

    Thank you, 

    Sarah
