KY Modifier note for Round 2:
Make sure that the KY modifier being used for accessories for power mobility complex rehab is only used if patient is in a Competitive Bid Round 2 area. Not to be used on patients claims in a NON CB area or only Round 1 CB areas.
The KE modifier will continue to be used with all accessories in non CB and CB areas to prevent losing the 9.5% carve out amounts with the Round 1 issues for complex rehab bases.
The KE should be used to prevent loss of the 9.5% carve out amount on power and manual as well in both CB and non CB areas. The accessories on previous KE modifier chart would be the same as items that would require the KE at this point. For manual chairs in complex the KE is still required.
