The North Carolina Medical Society, in collaboration with the Specialty Societies, the AMA, and other State Medical Associations, continues to advocate on your behalf to address unnecessary and administratively burdensome requirements that impact care access, delivery, and payment.

This week those advocacy efforts proved successful when Cigna announced it is delaying the implementation of the new modifier 25 requirements. The Cigna modifier 25 policy was updated with this information on 5/22/2023.

NCMS will continue working with Cigna to improve and inform policy updates and provider communications.
