The Q8 and Q9 modifiers are in relation to procedures performed for nail and foot care. We have used them at our facility let me know specific type of clarification you need.
Can you please help with clarity on absent pulses specifically. The requirement states for a class B findings:
Absent posterior tibial pulse;
Does this mean that each pulse on each foot qualifies for a "B" or it has to be in relation to each foot. So if a patient has both dorsalis pedis pulses missing it only qualifies for 1 "B" and not 2. Or that if a patient has both absent posterior tibial pulse and Absent dorsalis pulse on one foot it only qualifies for 1 "B" and not 2.
