Medicaid Jcode and RT & LT modifiers

RT and LT Modifier Requirements for Intravitreal (Eye)
and Intra-Articular (Knee) Injections

Effective January 1, 2012, Florida Medicaid will require either RT or LT modifiers on HCPCS drug codes related to intravitreal (eye) and intra-articular (knee) injections. The reference chart of HCPCS codes listed below will require RT or LT modifiers.  Additionally, the following modifiers may no longer be used:  22, 50, and/or 99.  Using modifiers 22, 50, and/or 99 will cause the claim to reject.

Each submitted claim must reflect the anatomical site, right (RT) or left (LT), where the injection was administered. This modifier requirement is applicable when a patient receives a unilateral injection (one side), or bilateral injections (both sides) during a single visit. Bilateral injections on a single visit are to be billed in two (2) separate claims using RT and LT 
modifiers.
